Movies Watched, May 2016

“Love & Friendship” directed by Whit Stillman

I got out to the movies last month—three times, even! I saw Whit Stillman’s delicious “Love & Friendship,” which, as a Jane Austen adaptation, is not exactly in the same milieu as his modern classics “Metropolitan” and “Barcelona,” but it nevertheless fully recaptures his magical and very particular blend of absurdly articulate witticicsms and high society mannerist comedy. The natural complement to such period costume entertainments is, of course “Captain America: Civil War,” which was good enough fun that I went to see it twice. I’m not exactly proud of that, but at heart, I am a geek.
