Introduction An extremely popular film Clueless was released in 1995 It was an adapted version of a famous novel by Jane Austen Emma I will discuss about the film in this essay on how Amy Heckerling the director of Clueless has transformed the pre-20th Century almost ancient compared to the style of today novel of Emma practically revolutionised it in terms of setting language and style and made it into a film If you watch Clueless and then read the novel of Emma its quite hard to distinguish where the similarities lie as Emma was written in the 1800s based in a traditional small Hampshire village where people were reserved snobby and arrogant Clueless on the other hand is set in an American late 20th Century high school where people can be everything and anything that they wish to be However certain areas of the two plots are very much the same and the effect each character has in Clueless has an almost identical effect on the plot in Emma For example Emma Woodhouses actions end up with her marrying Mr Knightly the same happens in Clueless however each of the characters equivalents take on each role The author of Emma Jane Austen was born in Steventon Hampshire on 16th December 1775 She was the fifth child in a family of eight six boys and two girls but had only one sister Cassandra Her education consisted of learning from a private tutor at a boarding school Her father encouraged her within her education imagination and literacy skill among her many talents apart from writing she very much enjoyed dancing and she was also an accomplished pianist In 1800 Janes father decided to retire and in 1801 moved with his wife and two daughters to Bath Jane Austen died in Winchester Hampshire on 18th July 1817 from Addisons disease unmarried very much like her elder sister Although Austens books are over
