Clueless (1995)

The one and only Andy Carling persuaded us to watch Clueless with him at the weekend. The only thing I knew about this film was that it is based closely on Jane Austen's Emma, which I thoroughly bounced off when I read it a few years back. But in fact this worked much better for me - Alicia Silverstone, who was still a teenager herself when the film was made, is hilarious as Cher, monstrously insensitive and yet meaning the best in her own special way, and then reaching an epiphany of realising what she has really done. And there are many brilliant lines. I may give the original Austen novel another go.
