Austen’s biting satire

TV ON DEMAND

Anya Taylor-joy is a joy to watch in this bright new adaptation of Jane Austen’s 1815 social satire. The 23-yearold Floridian is magnetic, both coquettish and sly, as Emma Woodhouse, the meddling rich young lady whose misplaced belief in her matchmaking skills leads to turmoil, especially for her friend Harriet (Mia Goth). With Miranda Hart as loquacious Miss Bates, it’s clear that director Autumn de Wilde wants to introduce some fun. And a little bawdiness: in its brief flashing of Mr Knightley’s bare bottom, this Emma has its own Colin Firth moment. What would Ms Austen say? Sky Store, available now
