Love and Friendship on DVD

Love and Friendship
based on the novel by Jane Austen [DVD Love] 

Based on one of Jane Austen’s earliest literary works, this film adaptation of “Lady Susan” is a comical satire of a mother’s attempts to get a husband for her daughter. In some respects the film reminded me of a series of comedy sketches all put together to tell a story. The humor is very subtle at first, but improves as the film goes on. This should not be compared with any of Austen’s later works which are more serious in nature yet with some humor as well. It is definitely worth watching.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Sense and Sensibility (1995 – directed by Ang Lee) or Northanger Abbey] [Also available in traditional print format.] [ Internet Movie Database entry for this film ] | [ official Love and Friendship web site ]
