Suggesting a web-framework is an easy task, but you as an owner have to
evaluate the available options that fits into your needs. Personal bias in
these kind
of questions in open forums is pretty high. Also most frameworks would
support almost
all the features that you have requested.

Having said that, i tend to lean towards django.
