Who wouldn’t want to spend a delightful Saturday afternoon in the company of Kate Beckinsale and Whit Stillman, star and director of Love & Friendship?
Well, now you have the chance because there’s a special Q&A screening taking place on Saturday 28th May at the Curzon Chelsea in London and you can attend.
Just check out the link below to fill in your details and hopefully you’ll be selected to watch one of the most entertaining Jane Austen adaptations ever made.
Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) visits 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 (Morfydd Clark).
In doing so, she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy (Xavier Samuel), the rich and silly Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett) and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring (Lochlann O’Mearain), complicating matters severely.
Love & Friendship is an adaptation of the young Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan, believed to have been written in the mid 1790s when it is also set. Whit Stillman reunites Beckinsale with Chloë Sevigny after the 1998 film The Last Days of Disco. Sevigny plays Lady Susan’s friend and confidante Alicia Johnson, with Stephen Fry as her husband, the “very Respectable” Mr. Johnson.
Critically acclaimed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Love & Friendship is in cinemas now, released by Curzon Artificial Eye.
