The latest adaptation of the Jane Austen novel directed by music photographer Autumn de Wilde is a beautiful film with beguiling film sets. Emma follows the story of a girl whole meddles in other people’s love lives (mostly from the perfectly attired realm of her Georgian estate at Hartfield). But when it comes to finding love for Emma herself, she discovers that the love she’s been looking for has been right before her eyes all along.
The story is set against a backdrop of elegant decor and bright colours devised by production designer Kave Quinn in close collaboration with de Wilde who referenced films like Marie Antoinette and The Grand Budapest Hotel (and also a series of Georgian prints she owned) for colour. “Autumn also pointed to those Georgian dollhouses where everything is very crisp and each room has a very different style” said Quinn.
