Emma vs Clueless Emma and Clueless are two movies that illustrate Jane Austens novel entitled Emma The stories illustrate the importance of self-development and personal growth by using the theme of social status and moral worth The protagonists Emma and Cher are bound to transform from callow young adults to mentally and emotionally mature women given their similar situations The major difference between Emma and Clueless is the way situations in the plot of the story are illustrated and the different time frames used in the context The setting of Emma is in nineteenth century England while Clueless sets in Beverly Hills USA in the 1990s Both Emma and Cher are young ladies of the rich high-class society and cultural elite Money is important for both societies because money is synonymous to power and high social status Because of their wealth the protagonists are spoiled and they encompass a sense of vanity arrogance and social superiority Emma and Cher are supposedly the epitome of perfection of their time frame and setting Emma appears to encompass the beauty charm grace intelligence and wealth of an ideal woman in nineteenth century England and Cher has everything a teenage girl could possibly want a car a mansion and an endless line of expensive clothing And with all their wealth they have acquired the idea that they are superior to others Emmas arrogance is first seen when she brags about her skill in matching couples Likewise Cher exposes a sense of her pompousness when she and her best friend Dionne teach Tai how to be popular Emma and Chers arrogance and self-confidence has challenged them to do things beyond the norm They have taken two lower-class girls- Harriet and Tai- under their wing to assimilate with the upper-class society Emma thinks that Harriet has been associated with unworthy people and embarks on a mission to introduce her to the upper-class society In Clueless Cher takes pity on Tai
