There’s a first official poster for Love and Frienship, the upcoming romantic drama movie directed by Whit Stillman and starring Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny:
Opportunistic, devious, shrewd, calculating, cunning, unprincipled.
A lady never reveals her tactics.
Based on the Jane Austen novella “Lady Susan”.
“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.”
I don’t think a woman as pretty as Kate Beckinsale would need much cunning to seduce a man.
Anyway, here below two new pictures from the film:
And an interview with the film’s crew on the Sundance 2016 red carpet:
Sundance 2016 Red Carpet: Love and Friendship
Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny & Xavier Samuel star in this new film based on a previously unreleased Jane Austin book! Written and directed by Whit Stillman
Chloe Sevigny on Co-Star Kate Beckinsale: “Her Command of the Language Was So Great”
“It’s really unusual I think to have the two lead actresses and the director all back together after 150 years has gone by,” says ‘Love & Friendship’ actress Kate Beckinsale in regards to working with her co-star Chloe Sevigny and director Whit Stillman again. The trio teamed up for ‘The Last Days of Disco’ in 1998.
Still no official release date.
