Jane Austen's well-intending cupid comes to the screen once again in this adaptation of her popular novel starring Doran Godwin in the title role and John Carson in the role of Mr. Knightley. Having already orchestrated the marriage of longtime friend Miss Taylor, the scheming Emma next sets her sights on local vicar Mr. Elton. As Emma plots to find love for the vicar and her protégée Harriet Smith, her longtime friend Mr. Knightley looks on with a bemused mix of delight and dismay.
