Every Saturday morning, movie critic Francesca Rudkin joins Jack Tame to take a look at what is playing at the movies this weekend.

Emma

Kiwi author Eleanor Catton has written the script for the latest film version of Jane Austen's Emma.

The film scripted by the Booker Prize-winning author stars Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as Austen's eponymous spoiled and headstrong heroine, who delights in matching others while swearing that she will never marry.

It co-stars Bill Nighy as Emma's father Mr Woodhouse, Johnny Flynn (Lovesick) as her would-be love interest Mr Knightley, and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones) as her friend Mrs Weston.

Helen Kelly - Together

An intimate, inspirational portrait of Helen Kelly in the last year of her life, Together tells the story of a woman whose advocacy and generosity changed the lives of countless New Zealanders.
