      Jess Kibler Bitch Media The real pleasure here is in the complicated portrayal of the women of this time period and the various ways they navigate and subvert the gendered expectations put upon them by society. Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Angie Han Slashfilm Though the corseted bodices and full skirts suggest an Oscar bait-y period drama, Stillman quickly establishes Love & Friendship as an out-and-out comedy. Rated: 8/10 Jun 13, 2017 Full Review Kate Erbland indieWire Love & Friendship may not be traditional Austen, but it's pretty stellar Stillman. Rated: B Jan 2, 2017 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... a satirical, witty, and wickedly funny period piece adapted from the Jane Austen novella “Lady Susan.” It turns out Austen and [director Whit] Stillman are a great match... Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine As in any good period film, the servants are silent but decidedly present...Stillman is still a disciplinedly unfussy director, letting compact scenes unfold in medium shot. Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Josefina Sartora With elegant humor, Stillman unfolds a corrosive critique... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Dec 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jovy J Devilishly clever cross between Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde. Love the malicious nimbe wordplay! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Alec B Stillman and Austen make for a delightful combination. Beckinsale's performance confirms my suspicions that she's far better than the roles she usually gets. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review R H Very funny, well cast, excellent adaptation of a Jane Austen's book. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review Roxanne M The costumes were a disaster. This was the time of dandys the men's clothing was supposed to be high costly fabric, perfect cut, lace ruffles, gold embroidery, high cravets, stockings, shining boots, knee high trousers, perfect tied kerchief. None of that was here. The women were horribly dressed as well you would have thought them members of the working classes instead of wealthy people. They should have been dressed in plain colored/ striped fabrics for day wear or preferably white which was incredibly popular, hats were vertically worn with ribbons, feathers, knickknacks on them, they should have been wearing round gowns with a corset and chemise underneath, they would have had a matching satchel to carry their necessary items in for each dress and their shoes would have been decorated as well. Printed fabric was strictly for the evening . The hairstyles of the women while pretty were also ghastly for the time period. Miss Jane Austen wrote the book this was based on "Lady Susan" in the late 1790s so the time period should be honored. Then the actors and actresses most of them had horrible fake accents although the leading lady Kate Beckingsale was truly the worst she sounded like a southern Belle trying to sound like a English lady of the manor. It was horrendous. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review V. T This movie was utterly delightful. I laughed the whole way through at the dry wit which permeated the movie, and I loved the ending. 10/10 for me, I have my new favorite movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/30/23 Full Review James B great film great acting great costumes i just really love this film. great performance by kate beckinsale probably one of her best performances.
