A hit at the Sundance Film Festival where it received its World Premiere earlier in the year, acclaimed filmmaker Whit Stillman is the talent behind the forthcoming comic costume drama LOVE & FRIENDSHIP.
The adaptation of the Jane Austen classic novella, ‘Lady Susan’, Stillman writes and directs Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny in this project coming to US theaters via Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions on May 13.
Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon visits to the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society.
Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica.
In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.
