Love & Friendship () - IMDbThe director Whit Stillman adapting Jane Austen is one of those ideas that sounds like it's made up because it's so perfect, like Wes Anderson announcing that he's going to make an animated film about foxes based on a book by Roald Dahl. What's wonderful isn't just that he's doing it, but that doing it makes certain aspects of his talent official. You could even say it's a wonder that it didn't happen sooner, or that, in his own way, he's already been doing it for years. Stillman's films, which include " Metropolitan ," " Barcelona ," " The Last Days of Disco " and " Damsels in Distress ," are comedies of manners, about educated, often hyper-verbal people who are oblivious to how ridiculous they sound even when discussing Austen's " Mansfield Park ," as they do in "Metropolitan". They pursue romantic partners that are wrong for them, suffer through relationships that are wrong for them, remain oblivious to better matches that are right in front of them.
