"Metropolitan." "The Last Days of Disco." And now, "Love & Friendship."
Whit Stillman is the kind of filmmaker who only releases a movie every decade or so, but it's worth the wait.
"Love & Friendship," starring Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny, is based on a little-known Jane Austen novella called "Lady Susan." Austen's nephew published the novella some 50 years after her death. Mr. Stillman borrowed the title of his new movie from another obscure Jane Austen work, a short story she wrote when she was just 14.
