JANE Austen’s Emma is to be screened at Otley Courthouse this month.

The novel about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is re-imagined in this film made last year. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire about social class and the pain of growing up, Emma adventures through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along. Ana Taylor-Joy plays Emma, and Bill Nighy her father, and all musical performances are played by the actors themselves. The director, Autumn de Wilde, is a photographer and all the scenes are approached with a photographer's eye.

The film will be screened at 2pm on Thursday, October 21.Tickets cost £5 and include tea/coffee and biscuits from 1.30pm.They are available on 01943 467466 (10am to 2.30pm) or at otleycourthouse.org.uk.
