Tells the story of two sisters, polar opposites Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, whose hopes of marrying well are smashed when their family's estate is left to an arrogant stepson upon the death of their father.

Emma Woodhouse is a young woman who, having engineered the marriage of her companion, turns her attention toward making a match for the local vicar and her new protegee, Harriet Smith. Her one voice of reason and restraint is Mr. Knightley, who has known her since she was a child and who watches her behavior with wry amusement and sometimes with real anger.

At the village's welcoming ball, Elizabeth meets up with a formidable adversary: Bingley's closest friend, the cold, prideful, extremely wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy who piques her to new heights of antagonism. When Darcy arrogantly urges Bingley to give up his burgeoning courtship of Elizabeth's sister, misunderstanding threatens to bury all he loves in turmoil and regret
