This movie tells the story of a young woman who meddles in the lives and romances of others. She tries to do good, as she sees it, but often makes a mess of things. The film is based upon Jane Austen's novel of the same name.
As with all films based on Jane Austen's novels, TWM recommends that, unless a child is an excellent reader, the film be seen before the book is read. See selection from the Guide below.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below the Benefits section from Learning Guide to Emma.
Benefits: The film is an excellent introduction to Jane Austen's novel, Emma. Austen's writings are difficult for most students to read. A college-level teacher has reported that her students are more interested in reading another Jane Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility, after they have seen a film version. She also tested students who had been shown the film before they read the book against a control group of students who hadn't seen the film but had only read the novel. She found that students who had viewed the film before reading the book had a better understanding of the characters and the plot. Watching this movie before reading the book Emma should have the same result. (See "Emma Thompson's Sense and Sensibility as Gateway to Austen's Novel" contained in Jane Austen in Hollywood, Edited by Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield, 1998, University of Kentucky Press, pages 140 - 147.)
The Learning Guide to the film Emma contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
