Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship stars Kate Beckinsale, Chloe Sevigny, Morfydd Clark, Stephen Fry, Xavier Samuel, Tom Bennett, Emma Greenwell, and Justin Edwards.

Set in the opulent drawing rooms of eighteenth-century English society, Love & Friendship focuses on the machinations of a beautiful widow, Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale), who, while waiting for social chatter about a personal indiscretion to pass, takes up temporary residence at her in-laws’ estate. While there, the intelligent, flirtatious, and amusingly egotistical Lady Vernon is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, naturally. She enlists the assistance of her old friend Alicia (Chloe Sevigny), but two particularly handsome suitors (Xavier Samuel and Tom Bennett) complicate her orchestrations.

Adapting Jane Austen’s unpublished early novella Lady Susan, Whit Stillman returns to the Sundance Film Festival (where his Metropolitan premiered in 1990) in top form with his latest comedy of manners.
