Win a Copy of Emma on Blu-ray

Win a Copy of Emma. on Blu-ray

It’s quite possible Jane Austen may qualify as the author whose works have been most adapted for the screen since the turn of the century. Her work continues to endure and in many ways might qualify as one of the earliest pop culture phenomenons.

The latest such effort is Emma., which Universal released just prior to the nation going into quarantine. While available to rent previously, it is now available to own via streaming with the Combo Pack (Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD) coming May 19. Or, you can win our contest.

Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) is a restless “queen bee” without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.

Autumn de Wilde’s feature debut Emma. is “irresistible” (Justin Chang, NPR) and “the best adaptation yet” (Matt Goldberg, Collider), featuring a fresh and razor-sharp screenplay by Man Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton (The Luminaries) that stays true to Austen’s endearing novel and brings to life the English Countryside in 1815. With an exceptional ensemble cast lead by Taylor-Joy Emma. is rounded out by Johnny Flynn (Beast), Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Series), Mia Goth (Suspiria), Josh O’ Connor (“The Crown”), Miranda Hart (Spy, Call the Midwife), Callum Turner (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, War & Peace), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education), Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Rupert Graves (Sherlock, A Room with a View) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones). Accompanied by a joyous and energetic score by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and David Schweitzer, Emma. is a stunning new vision of the groundbreaking literary classic on love and redemption. The theatrical version of the film is currently available for early viewing on a wide variety of popular on-demand services as a premium rental offering.
