PRAISE FOR LOVE & FRIENDSHIP - THE FILM

Kate Beckinsale is a devious delight... Beckinsale is a hoot to watch as a character with no redeemable qualities, except for her cunning ability to get what she wants. You can't help but love Lady Susan because of the evident joy she takes in being so duplicitous. Her energy is infectious. Despite its period trappings, Stillman's film never feels stilted, largely thanks to his bracingly modern heroine who takes no prisoners, and makes no apologies for her conniving behavior - Guardian

Jane Austen has never been funnier... Gliding through its compact 92 minutes with alert photography and not a single scene wasted, it's also Stillman on the form of his life...Kate Beckinsale's best role in 20 years... a deliciously controlled and self-aware performance, playing the Austen title character as a born manipulator so devious she can spin the rest of the ensemble around her little finger... The performances, even from some of the more surprising cast members, are uniformly sharp... Perhaps only by reading the book after you've seen this is the skill of Stillman's treatment to be fully grasped - it's one of the deftest feats of literary interpolation in ages - Daily Telegraph

Whit Stillman may have fashioned the finest Jane Austen movie this year: the delightfully droll Love & Friendship, based on Austen's novella Lady Susan... Stillman so effortlessly, elegantly bridges the gap between his conniving aristocrats and Austen's that it's difficult to say where one's sensibility ends and the other's begins. It's a misfortune that Stillman and Austen were born in different centuries, but Love & Friendship is a perfect match of two sly observers, each with the capacity to be at once cruelly satirical to, and fond, of, their creations. Beckinsale is superb... Love & Friendship is a most particular pleasure - New York Post

Whit Stillman returns - and on absolute peak form - with this drastically delightful Jane Austen adaptation... Superlative... Kate Beckinsale astonishes - Little White Lies
