Jane Austen — a classic of British and world literature, who made his name on the melodrama a challenging the share of women in Victorian England.

Austin knew, about what wrote. Living in a man's world the England of the 18th and 19th centuries married the writer so not out, and thirty put on the cap and declared itself an old maid.

Lying in the film is based on the novel Austen's "Lady Susan" — her early, but only posthumously published work.

And, if his more famous novels ("Mind and sensibility" "Pride and prejudice") to the theme of women desperately trying to arrange his life, successfully married, the writer approached seriously and with great sympathy to their characters, and the witty and sarcastic dialogues served as a form of story,  "Lady Susan", the author comes off in full.

All women and in the book, and in the film, as recruitment — adventuress and fraudsters seeking her in any way, and skilled in deceiving suckers-men, which the life of one the only advantage — tight purse.

The story itself is about lady Susan (in a brilliant performance Kate beckinsale), a widow who seeks a new husband for themselves, and along for his sixteen year old daughter, looks at ur including due to selected pattern makers, contemporary style — only cards with a representation of the characters are worth!

However, the main advantage as the novel, written in the form of letters, so and film adaptation, are branded dialogues Austin.

The film was carefully transferred to all the severity of the book, result in viewing is impossible to hold back the laughter.

Separate praise worthy costumes and decorations ribbon — the artists will undoubtedly be marked Oscar nominations at the end of 2016.

"Love and friendship" — smart is different from a modern Comedy tape. In no hint of vulgarity and put the film with typical British subtlety.

Author chosen ribbon style in the result was successful — the film easily recouped its modest three-million budget.

I want to wish him good luck in the Russian hire. Not often our screens fall into such smart Comedy. Not miss out!

Accidentally stumbled on the trailer for the upcoming movie, after he knew remained confusion — not heard earlier about this Jane Austen novel, even though I was sure that familiar with a work of the famous writer. The trailer was on captivating, the truth had to wait until the film gets to our cinemas. And say seriously, what kind of movie to wait for cost!

Lady Susan Vernon is in a difficult situation. Having been left a widow in thirty years after losing the house and saving, this practical lady goes along with 15тилетней daughter Frederica visit to the family of her late husband. On first glance, it is the usual story about the lady who is trying to improve his life and the life of my daughter. But lady Susan is far from unusual lady: it after a couple of conversations can fall in love with any man her despise ladies and others, more prudent, she admire. At this time she has a plan: find Frederica for yourself a rich husband...

Surprised such a low rating of this film on the CP. On my opinion the film turned out really nice. Surprisingly liked it ironic and slightly sarcastic attitude. Same irony pervades all the works of Jane Austen: and so precisely it draws the various features of different representatives of a secular society, so amazing prescribes them dialogues, everyone, even the most insignificant image remains complete and full. Due to this irony, I am smiled the entire movie!

Main plus the film was his caste: reigns an amazing Kate beckinsale, who played a scheming high-society lady Susan, which can be simultaneously to adore, and hate these same intrigue that fascinates almost every man, and can any, even the most awkward situation to wrap in its favor. Watching Susan throughout the film, I remained full shock. — as a lady who does not particularly possess the mind, charms all men in the world, goes through the bones of all women in a row, to convince the right people in his scholarship and erudition, men — his honesty and morality, and women — in his kindness and goodwill? It remains a mystery for all...

The Central character I allot of Reginald de Kursi (Xavier Samuel), a young, handsome and rich heir, for whom he laid down his eyes enterprising lady Susan. The irony of this character lies in the fact that, claiming in the beginning that it is not fall in network lady Susan, Reginald is completely her fascinated!

I would pick this hero — sir James Martin (Tom Bennett). Even more rich and noble Lord, which is blatant nonsense, which expresses his opinion about all of this, leading others in utter confusion. Knowing that sir James is in search of a wife, lady Susan tries to matchmake for his young, quiet and modest daughter of Frederick, it is not considering the opinion of a potential bride.

Small and very storage role was in Chloe sevigny Stephen fry (another reason to watch the movie!). Chloe played the best friend lady Susan, the American Alicia Johnson, who supports his girlfriend in all politics, Steven acted as her husband, Mr. Johnson, one of the few who know the true essence of lady Susan, and which prohibits the wife to communicate with this special under the fear of returning to America!

Personally, I film friendship brought a lot of fun. Ironic, sarcastic, easy, hilarious. Advised fans of British drama, and fans of Jane Austen's works in particular. Still, I have a feeling that this film is also appreciate dignity.

Unnamed work, written in the forty letters classic English novelist Jane Austen, who stood at the beginning of the formation of the genre of women's romance, not was published in her life. Only after the death of Jane Austen note was discovered by her nephew, who gave the composition the title "Lady Susan". And then, just after a family meeting, relatives of the deceased writer gave the green light to publish. Many critics and biographers of Jane Austen believe that "Lady Susan" — this is just a sample of the pen and its contents form very different about for the writer became world famous. It is noted that "Lady Susan" was a novel where the sophistication of the humor is missing, but in excess contains cynicism and greed, intrigues and squabbles. Almost all these unpleasant qualities has absorbed in herself Lady Susan. And here came her turn to be filmed.

As you can see the official name of the novel was omitted and instead it was taken otherwise, and it "Love and friendship". This is the name of one of essays by Jane Austen, and the conviction of the film's Director whit Stillman called "Love and friendship" was fixed already during the shooting process. The official release of the film occurred on the most significant festival of independent cinema "Sundance" and it was positively received by critics, noting the ease and grace of storytelling along with successful transmission of morals and life of the English aristocracy of the times of Jane Austen. But not uncommon, when the critics do not match with audience I honestly can find on the side of the second. And because Stillman was quite possible to expect a triumphant return, because after opening band "Golden youth" in 1989, the year he even got a nomination on"Oscar" for the best scenario, the subsequent has been met with cool. But, alas, expectations were not fulfilled.

Except that "Love and friendship" is a very attractive picture with the point of view of surroundings, costumes, hairstyles and makeup, and also sweetens the hearing well-constructed dialogue, but is as You know the great merit of Jane Austen, more tape can boast of nothing. If you take in hand book play, before the table of contents will be given a list of valid entities and brief description about each of them. This technique was used and whit Stillman, it is likely that the viewer is not confused with characters. But everything turned out with exactly on the contrary: the confusion started such that by the first third of the duration of the film turned into a Frank hash, where all the rush, to prove something, waving their hands and only lady Susan is cool. By the way, in contrast its literary prototype in the movie the main character is not cause hostility, on the contrary — she is a very attractive person. Perhaps because of this the film loses in the drama looks too monotonous.

The role of lady Susan was given to Kate Beckinsale, which has shot Stillman in 1998, the year in the film "the Last days disco." Not to say that Kate to the last time career is in the rising, good projects are interspersed with failure. But is Beckinsale excelled in"Love and friendship" the most compelling and attractive role. Not the whole nature of the character was revealed, we cannot say that it's downright masterful schemer and gossip girl, but in his stunning outfits and with easy ulbikas Kate Beckinsale was and remains an attractive special and it becomes clear why to her lady Susan clung people, especially men of different ages. Good shows itself in the way Alicia Johnson who considers himself a friend of lady Susan, Chloe sevigny, who also played in"the Last days of disco". It seems to understand that lady Susan threat, but cannot oppose yourself in the search of communication with friend. The rest of the actors played perhaps the power roles, and to film adaptations of the novels Jane Austen is a luxury.

History of cinema knows some very successful adaptations of the works of the great English writer Jane Austen, but "Love and friendship" certainly not included in this list. As a costume movie, of course, it happened, but not that it was famous for it is perceived as a matter of course. But here is the drama and acting is unlikely to cause deep emotions to which is committed by any admirer of the talent of Jane Austen. And also Kate Beckinsale then few people can distinguish, but and not the best role in his career.
