Love & Friendship est une comédie romantique irlando-franco-néerlandaise réalisée par Whit Stillman et sortie en 2016, avec, dans les rôles principaux,
Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel et Stephen Fry.
Malgré le titre choisi, celui d'un conte parodique que Jane Austen écrivit à quatorze ans, en 1790, le film est une adaptation du roman épistolaire Lady Susan, qu'elle écrivit vers 1794, mais qui n'a pas été publié avant 1871.


Lady Susan Vernon, encore jeune et belle veuve aux mœurs assez scandaleuses, est une femme égoïste et manipulatrice, une mère tyrannique qui cherche à marier à un riche imbécile sa fille de seize ans, Frederica, qu'elle traite avec mépris et cruauté. Frederica, protégée par la lucide Catherine Vernon, belle-sœur de Lady Susan, tombe amoureuse de Reginald De Courcy, le frère de cette dernière. Mais Lady Susan a jeté son dévolu sur lui et compte bien l'épouser elle-même.

Don Pedro of Aragon (Denzel Washington) and his noblemen are visiting their good friend Leonato (Richard Briers) in Messina after having crushed an uprising led by Don John (Keanu Reeves), the prince's bastard half-brother. With him is the misogynistic and witty Benedick (Kenneth Branagh), erstwhile flame of Leonato's equally sharp-tongued and somewhat fierce niece, Beatrice (Emma Thompson). Beatrice and Benedick are both stubborn and proud. Also present are Benedick's "sworn brother" Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard), a young count; and Don John who, despite his attempt at rebellion, has apparently reconciled with his brother. Claudio has been thinking fondly of Leonato's gentle and lovely daughter Hero (Kate Beckinsale) since before he went to war, and returns to find her as attractive as ever. Don Pedro, learning of his young friend's feelings, decides to act on his behalf and arranges the match at a party. An unrepentant and ill-intentioned Don John attempts to foil it, but unsuccessfully: the match is made. Needing something to pass the time until the wedding day, Don Pedro decides to arrange a similar fate for Beatrice and Benedick. Of course, with each party being such a “professed tyrant” to the opposite sex, this match will take a little more ingenuity.
