A radiant performance by Gwyneth Paltrow (Seven) and a terrific adaptation of Jane Austen's timeless novel are just two reasons why this witty romantic comedy won outstanding critical acclaim. In the lush countryside of 19th century England, there's a young woman so devoted to meddling in the affairs of others that she fails to recognise the longings of her own heart. Her name is EMMA (Paltrow). And, although she's "never one to interfere," Emma manages to make a mess out of every romance she sets up. But her biggest blunder may lie ahead when she discovers her own feelings for her handsome brother-in-law... a man she can't decide whether she loves or loathes. Featuring a top supporting cast, this smart and sassy film has audiences cheering with delight.

Mansfield Park
Mansfield Park, Jane Austen's third and most controversial novel, is brought to life by a talented cast featuring upcoming young stars (Jonny Lee Miller) as well as an ensemble of established actors.
Spirited Fanny Price (Frances O'Connor) is sent by her poverty-stricken mother to live with her prosperous aunt and cousins at their grand country estate. Here, she struggles to adjust to aristocratic protocol and the daily reminders of her inferiority to her relatives. When her sparkle and wit bring the inevitable interest of suitors, Fanny is forced to decide whether to marry for love or status.
A timeless satire on manners, money and passion set against the backdrop of outwardly genteel 19th century English society, Mansfield Park will delight Austen fans everywhere.
