Movie Review: Love & Friendship

September 13, 2016

"Love & Friendship" is directed by Witt Stillman and starring Kate Beckinsale, Xavier Samuel, Jemma Redgrave and Stephen Fry.

Review by Karen Chutsky The Movie Lady

There is no bigger fan of anything British than myself, so it was with the highest of regard and anticipation that I viewed “Love and Friendship.”

But within five minutes, I was assaulted by a rambling overwrought 18th century diatribe dialogue that was like nails on a chalkboard.

“This was not done by an English Director,” I becried.
