You really must read the book before seeing the movie. I can't imagine this being half as entertaining without having read the book. The movie is very well done and faithful to the novel in plot and characters. Bill Nighly does great work as Emma's father - who is made out to be a strange character in the book (a little overplayed in the novel.. perfect in the movie).

It's very hard to gauge how this movie would go over with someone who has not read the book. Or read any Austen, for that matter. If I had to recommend an Austen based movie then the (2005) Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley is what I would recommend.. Movie and Book. Still, this is entertaining and the "uh oh" moments in the book are all there on the screen.

Summary from IMDB

Jane Austen's beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along. ?Focus Features
