Directed by Autumn de Wilde and written by Eleanor Catton, the comedy-drama film is based on the 1815 novel of the same name by Jane Austen that you can buy on Amazon.

Director Autumn de Wilde told The Mirror that Anya Taylor-Joy and her co-star Mia Goth were part of her pitch for the film from the start.

“Anya was part of my pitch and I didn’t want to be in a situation where I was being pressured to make her more likeable, more likeable, more likeable,” she shared.

“I wanted an actress who could portray someone who is struggling to be good or is misguided in her attempts to be good, is extremely selfish and cruel at times.”

The filmmaker added, “I needed an actor that could create a sympathetic figure – the Emma in themselves and the Emmas that they’ve known.”

“Mia Goth was a perfect Harriet,” she also shared about Mia Goth’s role as Harriet Smith, saying that “she was part of my pitch as well.”

Autumn also shared, “I liked the way that Mia and Anya can both play awkward and bloom in front of your eyes and both characters have to have moments where they’re completely lovable in different ways.”
