- An adaptation of Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan. In 18th century England, the widowed Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) attempts to solve her financial problems by landing a wealthy husband during a visit to her in-laws. However, her scheming is complicated by the sudden appearance of her teenage daughter Frederica (Morfydd Clark), and soon the two women are caught up in a love rectangle with a courtier (Xavier Samuel) and a suitor who's as rich as he is stupid (Tom Bennett). Chloë Sevigny co-stars as a friend of Susan's who tries to help with her matchmaking. Written and directed by Whit Stillman (who adapted the script from an early work by Jane Austen), LOVE & FRIENDSHIP made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
