You may watch below the official trailer of Love and Friendship, the upcoming romantic drama comedy movie directed by Whit Stillman and starring Kate Beckinsale, Chloe Sevigny, Morfydd Clark, Stephen Fry, Xavier Samuel, Tom Bennett, Emma Greenwell, and Justin Edwards:
LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP
Lady Susan has no husband and no money.
But she a plan: marry off her daughter, find herself a rich husband, and rendezvous with her love.
A Lady’s work is never done.
Based on Jane Austen’s comic gem.
From Writer-Director Whit Stillman
“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.”
There are no zombies in this movie adaptation of one of Jane Austen’s novel, but it look really funny. Can’t wait to see Kate Beckinsale’s performance as a scheming widow, lol!
The release date of the movie Love & Friendship is set to May 13, 2016.
