Love and friendship book review
Love and Friendship by Jane AustenLove and Friendship is so full of beautiful clothes that I kept forgetting that there was an actual movie involved. Love and Friendship relates a small portion of the havoc wreaked by Lady Susan, who is played with devastating aplomb by Kate Beckinsale. In her mind, Lady Susan is the heroine of her story, and Kate never lets that supreme self-confidence and self-regard falter for even a moment. Lady Susan is a widow with a marriageable daughter.
