Short Cuts Cinema presents Love & Friendship
Director: Whit Stillman 2016
Kate Beckinsale stars as Lady Susan, a high-class widow whose waning finances threaten her status and lifestyle. Accompanied by her American confidante Mrs. Alicia Johnson, who is waiting for her elderly husband (Stephen Fry) to pass on, the sharp-tongued Lady Susan sets her sights on charming Reginald de Courcy in the hope of a marriage and financial security. Her plans are disrupted with the arrival of her daughter Frederica, upon whom Lady Susan thrusts the dull, but extremely wealthy, Sir James Martin.
“Whit Stillman’s Austen drama is a racy delight.” The Guardian 5 STARS
