‘L&F’ in Entertainment Weekly

Kevin P. Sullivan at Entertainment Weekly  writes about how Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship came to be.

Stillman’s work has always owed some debt to Austen, making an adaptation of her work seem only logical, but it wasn’t until discovering Lady Susan that Stillman had the right work to tinker with. “I could add something that was kind of small and incomplete,” he said, “rather than subtracting tons of things from something that’s a masterpiece.”
