Amener v emmener

Amener v emmener

In the sentence below the verb emmener is used, however doesn't that give the impression that her mother stayed with her daughter to watch the film? Whereas the english text says that she watched the film with her best friend. Given the context and thinking retrospectively, I guess her mother would have stayed with her to watch it, but it's a little ambiguous (she could have just dropped her off at the cinema).

I used amener instead of emmener, but that wasn't given as an option.

j'avais dû casser les pieds à ma mère pendant des semaines pour qu'elle m'emmène voir "Amélie" avec ma meilleure amie Lola.
