Jane Austen Book Club features the movie "Clueless", starring Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd. One of the first modern adaptations of Austen's films, the screen play by teen favorite, Amy Heckerling, will be familiar to Austen fans as a broad parody of "Emma," while still making points on its own merits. According to the Internet Movie Database, "Jane Austen's Emma meets Beverley Hills 90210 in US West Coast teen lifestyle parody." Cher is the heroine, our Emma double, and she floats through life in a clear bubble of wealth and privilege. When she starts to remake a new student in her own image, the fun begins.
