Based on the Book


I was digging around, looking for a good post for this week's based on the book, when I made a rather shocking discovery. Apparently the 1995 teen movie Clueless is based on the Jane Austen novel Emma. Now, I've never read Emma, but I have seen Clueless (I was 14 when it was released and thought it was one of the greatest movies ever made) and am rather intrigued to see how they turned a victorian novel into a modern teen movie. We have Emma available for checkout in both the Young Adult and Adult section as well as on Cassette.
