Lining up for tickets
Since its initial release two weeks ago, Love and Friendship, Whit Stillman’s new film adaptation of Austen’s Lady Susan, has been getting so much critical love (for instance, here, here and here) that I have barely been able to restrain my eagerness to see it.
Living in the ‘burbs, as I do, I have had no choice but to relearn the virtue of patience. And at last, said virtue will be rewarded: Our local art house cinema will start showing Love and Friendship – the first-ever screen adaptation of this lesser-known gem of a novella -- this coming weekend.
Needless to say, I will be first in line.
