Summary, etc.:
"Directed by Amy Heckerling and starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Paul Rudd, and Brittany Murphy, and set in Beverly Hills, Clueless is an American comedy film loosely based on Jane Austen's novel Emma. Will we ever get tired of watching Cherilyn "Cher" Horowitz navigate Beverly Hills high school and discover true love? Originally released as a motion picture by Paramount in 1995, Clueless is still one of the most streamed movies on Netflix. Clueless is a pop culture staple. Jen Chaney has compiled an oral history of the making of the film using recollections from the film's cast and crew. A behind-the-scenes look at how Emma influenced Heckerling to write the script, how the stars were cast, and how the costumes, sets, and soundtrack were created"--Provided by publisher.
