LOVE & FRIENDSHIP
Lady Susan Vernon takes up temporary residence at her in-laws' estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica -- and herself too, naturally. —IMDB
Based on an early novella by Jane Austen. It was mildly entertaining but I didn’t think it was as good as other Jane Austen adaptations I’ve seen. There didn’t seem to be enough tonal variation — the whole thing felt pretty much the same all the way through. There are some very witty one-liners and one character (the name of which I can’t remember) was very funny. But, overall, pretty average and lacked emotional engagement.
