To celebrate the release of Love & Friendship, in Australian cinemas from July 21, Transmission Films has handed us 10 double passes to give away!
Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny lead this lively and very funny adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan. The film tells of Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale), who takes up temporary residence at her in-laws’ estate, determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, of course.
Love & Friendship has been receiving wide acclaim, and even our own Stephanie Collier called it a “visual and auditory delight” in her review.
Be sure to see Love & Friendship when it hits cinemas on July 21.
An exquisite comedy of matchmaking and heart-break, Academy Award nominated filmmaker Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco) is in top-form directing his own adaptation of Jane Austen’s early novella concerning the sensational Lady Susan Vernon.
Set in the opulent drawing rooms of eighteenth-century English society, Love & Friendship follows the deliciously scheming and manipulative Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale). Aided and abetted by her loyal friend Alicia Johnson (Chloe Sevigny), Lady Susan is on a mission to find a husband for herself and her long-suffering daughter Frederica.
But two young men, the handsome Reginald DeCourcy (Australia’s Xavier Samuel) and wealthy Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett), severely complicate their plans.
