Over break I watched Mamma Mia and I found a character comparison of Sophie and Sky to Emma and Mr. Knightley. From the very start of Emma, Emma tries to play her matchmaking game instead of focusing on her own love life. Likewise, Sophie starts the story by sending three invitations to her wedding to three men who are all potentially her father. As the story unfolds, Sophie is overwhelmed by the wedding ordeal and her three possible fathers. In comparison, Emma becomes frustrated with her failed “projects” and complains to Mr. Knightley who becomes her voice of reason. As a parallel, Sky helps Sophie get back on track with the scene I linked above, lowering her stress and helping her focus on more important things, like her relationship with him, just like Mr. Knightley focuses Emma’s attention from her friend’s love lives to her own.
Please don’t mind the watermark over the scene, it was the only way for me to post it.
