Description

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP

Director: Whit Stillman; USA/Ireland, 2016, 92 minutes

99% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES!

The first time I saw Whit Stillman's Love & Friendship I fell head over heels. And like anything you love at first sight, you want to see it again. I can't think of a more wickedly modern romantic comedy, even though the film is based on Lady Susan, an unfinished epistolary novella that Jane Austen wrote in 1794 when she was about 20.

Whit Stillman is known for writing and directing his own elegantly witty films: Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco. Happily, Austen and Stillman prove to be soulmates.

A sublime Kate Beckinsale digs into the role of her career as Lady Susan Vernon, a widow with impeccable taste and scheming ambitions. Lady Susan's ally in finding financial and sexual satisfaction is Alicia Johnson (Chloe Sevigny), the American wife of a wealthy Brit (a terrific Stephen Fry). The language, a lyrical blend of Austen and Stillman, is a kind of music, the kind that bewitches even as it stings. It’s pure pleasure and ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR. –Rolling Stone
