Newsweek: L&F One of the Best Movies of 2016

Newsweek writer Nina Burleigh has this to say about Love & Friendship (one of the top 21 films of the year, picked by Newsweek):

The dialogue delights the ear and mind; there are lots of laughs; and the spirit of Lady Susan, brought to impish life by Beckinsale, is balm for the female soul. That apparently is what Stillman intended. “I’m a pleasure seeker, and I want people to have 90 minutes of pleasure, not pain,” he said recently. “To have a positive, interesting world, cheerful in some way—I like that.” So do we. —Nina Burleigh​
