1. WATCH: Emma
Based on the celebrated novel by Jane Austen, this new film adaptation promises big laughs (Bill Nighy stars as Mr. Woodhouse) and plenty of inspirational, badass-female moments. While we all know the story of Emma (a well-meaning but selfish young woman of 1800's England who likes to meddle with her friends' love lives), this version gives the story fresh meaning and serves as a charming commentary on the status of love and relationships in the digital age.
Emma is in cinemas from today.
