Movie Diary 4/26/2016

Love and Friendship (Whit Stillman, 2016). The combination of Stillman and an obscure Jane Austen book proves as tasty as you would imagine. It’s so discreet that you will really have to pay attention, which is a good thing. The great Brit cast makes it a real ensemble piece, though undeniably led by Kate Beckinsale. (full review 5/27)

Mother’s Day (Garry Marshall, 2016). Another holiday-themed party from Marshall, who lands a few zingers in amidst the generic sitcom material. This, truly, is comedy from another era, practically another galaxy. (full review 4/29)
