#EMMA: ELEANOR CATTON

This year the bonnet is back, as is much knowing High Englishness with a new movie adaptation of Jane Austen’s 1815 masterpiece Emma, directed by Los Angelian Autumn de Wilde. Making her movie script-writing debut with the update is Eleanor Catton, who won the Man Booker prize with her novel The Luminaries, set in the West Coast goldfields of New Zealand. In conversation with Kathryn Burnett, Catton discusses Emma, and the rigours of adapting it to the screen, considering among other things, whether it is at all possible to improve upon Mr George Knightley’s line: “Fine dancing, I believe, like virtue, must be its own reward.”
