Now that we’ve surprised everyone, I can officially announce…TORI IS HERE! My friend flew in from Montana for a 4 day weekend so that we could crash our other friend’s wedding. It is a long story.
Today we went and saw the new Jane Austen movie Love and Friendship, aka Lady Susan. It was surprisingly good!
Lady Susan was written in epistolary style…so letters back and forth between characters. The movie did a great job adapting to the screen.
Love and Friendship is more serious than Austen’s other works. The characters are all extremely flawed. The conclusion is a little disturbing. However, the movie is also laugh out loud hilarious and genuinely sweet. It might not win as many fans as P&P but definitely has the potential to gain its own cult following!
Totally worth seeing.
