Very inspiring story
I love Jane Austin adaptions, but this fails misarably. Even as a comedy it is not. Strange adaption. Would not bother to watch this again.
The DVD was delivered very promptly and with no issue – the disc itself is great quality and the film is fantastic, absolutely a must-see for any Austen fan or person who enjoys quick-witted wordplay and period dramas. Thank you Mighty Ape!
I knew this movie wouldn't be excellent, but it was worse than I expected. The acting was that great and I know there isn't much to the story line, but it felt like it just kind of ended. The costumes were lovely.
Love & Friendship
Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica. In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely. Based on a recently discovered Jane Austen novella, Lady Susan.
Love & Friendship Reviews
“Kate Beckinsale is perfect in the leading role of young widow Lady Susan Vernon, a beautiful and cunning woman who makes Machiavelli look like a bumbling innocent when it comes to scheming.” – Movie Talk
“Turns out this strangely titled adaptation, named after another of Austen's novellas, isn't just delightful good fun, it's also terribly funny, sharp and dry, and wonderfully brought to life by an irrepressible Kate Beckinsale.” – New Zealand Herald
“Love & Friendship is Jane Austen with the romance drained out, exposing the pragmatism and the economic urgency underneath. That sounds grim, but the result is actually a tart, fizzy delight from Metropolitan director Whit Stillman.” – Buzzfeed News
