Love & Friendship
Director Whit Stillman
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Xavier Samuel, Emma Greenwell, Morfydd Clark, Jemma Redgrave
Kate Beckinsale is the scandalous widow with a distinguished name but no money. She is therefore looking for a suitable husband! The film is an unexpected delight, a very dry and tremendously witty adaptation of a little known Jane Austen novella.
“Love & Friendship is highly entertaining, with Austen’s text fitting Stillman’s style like a Regency-era glove.” Sight and Sound
Average = 7.81
Great cast overall, but Kate Beckinsale was fabulous!!
Beautiful close ups and editing.
Pure HAM! The duet was great.
Brilliant! And with subtitles you could read – even though not needed.
[And on the subject of subtitles…..]
Prefer without subtitles – found that I didn’t watch the film.
Did not enjoy subtitles – distracting.
Would have been a 10 if it didn’t have subtitles.
