Love & Friendship ★★★★½

What do you call someone who doesn't like this?

A bit of a rattle.

Whit Stillman's mastery falls in line with the confined structures and rooms of Austen's sharp, blistering snark, so it's only a matter of time before he tackled her work directly, settling into the plainly decadent hallways of Churchill and reveling in the quick wit of the tongue. So much delight in its airtight 93 minutes that it'll give you a contact high via the sheer extravagance of its mise en scène and the sly, sneaky women within it; a rearranging of a table controlled by buffoons.
