    This Week’s Review: Love and Friendship

    For the June 18 weekend, I caught a film I had almost overlooked, Love and Friendship; that title is misleading since the film is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Lady Susan.  Since I eschew chick flicks, I misinterpreted the title; I was also confused because Love and Friendship is the title of another Austen story.  …

The cast is good, but one of the film’s …
