Love & Friendship.
Sydneysiders can catch a special Q&A preview screening of Love & Friendship with Aussie actor Xavier Samuel next week at the Cremorne Orpheum.
Love & Friendship sees Academy Award nominated filmmaker Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco) direct his own adaptation of Jane Austen’s early novella Lady Susan.
The film follows the scheming and manipulative Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) who, aided and abetted by her loyal friend Alicia Johnson (Chloë Sevigny), is on a mission to find a husband for herself and her long-suffering daughter Frederica.
Their plans are complicated by two young men, the handsome Reginald DeCourcy (Xavier Samuel) and wealthy Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett).
Love & Friendship will be in cinemas nationally via Transmission July 21.
