Q: I always like to read the book before I see the movie. I know “Love and Friendship” was based on a Jane Austen novel, but I don’t see it in the library catalog. Does the book have a different title?
A: Yes. Director Whit Stillman’s film, “Love and Friendship,” is based on Austen’s early novella, “Lady Susan.”
I am going to go way out on a limb here. It is no secret that I am a book lover. I almost always think the book is better than the movie.
When it comes to Jane Austen, I love both the books and the movies.
