The only negative thing I can say about Love & Friendship, set to release May 13th, is that Colin Firth isn’t in it (I checked many times) so let’s look at all the things that makes this a must-see film.
-Based on Jane Austen’s Lady Susan, an epistolary novella published posthumously.
-Lady Susan is known as “the most accomplished flirt in all England.”
-Kate Beckinsale is Lady Susan.
-It looks like women behaving deliciously badly.
-Also starring Chloë Sevigny.
-And Stephen Fry.
-With all the comedies that haven’t made me laugh lately I see much promise when the trailer cracked me up.
Now to decide whether to read Lady Susan before or after watching the film…
