Love & Friendship 

4/4 stars

I generally love Whit Stillman and I generally hate Jane Austen adaptations, so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this one. But while most Austen adaptations lose a lot of her sharp, satirical edge and turn her stories into soupy romances, this movie felt even sharper and more biting than Austen herself... More like Dangerous Liaisons than Sense and Sensibility. I'm not sure how much of that is due to Stillman, and how much of it is original to Lady Susan, which I haven't read (now I must!). Either way, the movie was great gobs of fun, if not quite as heart-wrenchingly relatable as the Metropolitan saga.
