This film somehow made the Guardian Film top films of 2016 - we made it through the first 20 minutes before giving up. Watch the trailer - this seems to be pretty much the best bits of the film and the character development and editing in the actural film does not move past this level. Save your money and time.
LOVE & FRIENDSHIP concerns beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) who has come to Churchill, the estate of her in-laws, to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and for her daughter, Frederica.
Awful. Dull. Cheap. A nonsense. Really!
How could they get this so terribly wrong? Disjointed. Incoherent. Dull. Boring. Appeared low budget and amateur. I would really like a refund and the two hours of my life back, wasted on this tripe!
If two critics where in a room talking about a film, book or play, one of them would be wrong.
I love period dramas and watch them all😜. But this was woeful! Extremely dull and I didn't even watch until the end.
Read the negative reviews. Very unsatisfying film. Superficial portrayal of boring characters.
A trashy period drama.
I had hoped that this one of those times where the previous viewers were wrong about their reviews. I'm sorry to say that it could have been really good, instead it's very dull and uninteresting.
I watch a lot of films from all sorts of genres and this is by far the worst film i have ever seen.
This film is terrible. I wanted to turn it off after 5 minutes. Weird format, poor story line and some terrible acting. One star is overrated!
No depth! You see all the best bits in the trailers….
I watched this movie with my 13 year old daughter and we both adored it. There's a crisp, witty script and some great performances from a strong ensemble cast. Ms Beckinsale is glorious as the highly intelligent but morally vacuous schemer Susan Vernon. More like this please!
What a shallow story (if any); this movie was a real dissapoitment. No story, no real characters, it felt like a very expensive imitation of an english romantic drama, but seriously waste of money and time.
Was looking forward to this but found it really strangely made and lacking in any real story 😟
