Trailer: Easy A

My husband convinced me to watch this trailer a week or so ago. He said “It’s a modern, high-school take on The Scarlet Letter!” I groaned and rolled my eyes, but watched it anyway. And actually?

In case you weren’t aware, it is, in fact, an updated version of Jane Austen’s Emma, and it really hits all the right notes, both in terms of Austen’s novel and in terms of putting her situations into a modern, and hilarious context.
