Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Love & Friendship is a funny, fast-paced romantic drama adapted from an obscure, early Jane Austen text. While it deals largely with adult situations -- such as discussions of marriage and cheating, as well as manipulation and passionate discussions -- there's almost zero iffy content, so it's appropriate for tweens and up (as long as they can follow the complex language and intricate plot). The most vivid character is smart and strong, but she's also extremely manipulative and isn't afraid to use her looks and wits to get what she wants.

Sexual Content

Discussions of marriage and relationships between men and women. Mentions of cheating partners.


Mild threat, passionate discussions.


Some insults, such as "fiend," "fool," "blockhead," "peabrain," "hateful."

Social Behavior

Cynicism and hope clash in terms of looking at marriage for practical purposes vs. marriage for love. While the cynical, practical side is more fun (and funnier), the romantic, hopeful side does get a fair shake.
