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 (Chloë Sevigny), but two particularly handsome suitors (Xavier Samuel and Tom Bennett) complicate her orchestrations.

Written and Directed by Whit Stillman
Starring Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny
Release Date - May 13, 2016

In hindsight, it's hard to imagine a more suitable pairing of director and material than Whit Stillman and Jane Austen.
First things first, I'm surrealist
