I really love the movie Love and Friendship and saw it before "reading" it. the novel is very close to what the movie is - except that the movie cut out the "author" and narrator of the book (love and friendship is a defense of the way lady Susan was portrayed in Jane austen's "lady Susan"). for me, the deletion of the narrator's commentary in the movie is a positive move as he seems only to serves to literally point out what should be obvious by inference. i give the author some credit for assuming that the reader won't "get it" without some help - since critics give it 99% fresh rating on rotten tomatoes, but viewers only give it a 68%. I think that it goes over quite a few people's heads. but, if you do get it, you find it smart and hilarious. the actors do a better job in the movie than the reader does in the audible performance. Kate Beckinsale is amazing in the role of lady Susan! if you will just choose one, watch the movie. if you love the movie as much as i, go ahead and get the book. you won't be disappointed. you also get "lady Susan" by Jane austen with the book in the form of appendices, which I was grateful for!
