Love and Friendship
Noted for his self-described “Doomed-Bourgeoisin-Love” films including 1990’s comedy of manners “Metropolitan” and 1998’s “The Last Days of Disco,” Whit Stillman goes to the source of impolitic propriety with a delectable adaptation of Jane Austen’s posthumously published novella, “Lady Susan”. Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny and Stephen Fry star in this English garden period flick about a widowed woman on the prowl for suitable suitors for her and her estranged daughter.
