To celebrate the release of the acclaimed Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship, available on DVD and Blu-ray from November 23, we’re giving 5 DVD copies to some lucky followers!
Featuring a cast led by Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny, this charming and very funny period film tells of Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale), who takes up temporary residence at her in-laws’ estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, naturally.
Set in the opulent drawing rooms of eighteenth-century English society, Love & Friendship focuses on the machinations of a beautiful widow, Lady Susan Vernon, 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, but two particularly handsome suitors complicate her orchestrations.
