Film Brief: Love and Friendship

Love and Friendship is not without a modicum of charms, but — as Simon Cowell would say — it’s a all a trifle boring.  I wasn’t buying most of it.

Compared to the great Merchant-Ivory-Anthony Hopkins productions Remains of the Day and Howard’s End, and more relevantly the Dangerous Liaisons trifecta which also includes Valmont and Cruel Intentions, Love and Friendship is a must-skip.  There’s more to a period piece than costumes, sets and erudite elocution with proper British accents.

Reminds me of Much Ado About Nothing.  4/10
