Following the UK premiere of the film, these are the video highlights of the red carpet event and Q&A recorded live at the Curzon Mayfair cinema. Please note, the Q&A contains mild spoilers. Based on the Jane Austen novella ‘Lady Susan’ and set in the high society of the 1790s, acclaimed writer-director Whit Stillman’s (The Last Days of Disco, Metropolitan) Love & Friendship is an exquisitely witty and devious comedy of matchmaking and heartbreaking. Beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. While ensconced there, she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely attractive, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely. But as always, Lady Susan has a plan... With a note-perfect ensemble cast including Chloë Sevigny and Stephen Fry, Love & Friendship is a fresh, subversive and frequently hilarious take on the traditional period drama. Featuring a revelatory turn from Kate Beckinsale as the duplicitous but thoroughly charming Lady Susan Vernon, Love & Friendship is the sharpest, wittiest Jane Austen adaptation to grace the screen. ✮✮✮✮✮ "Whit Stillman was born to direct a Jane Austen movie" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ✮✮✮✮✮ "A rapier-sharp comedy . . . the wittiest Austen adaptation to grace the screen" - Kate Muir, The Times ✮✮✮✮✮ "Breathlessly funny . . . Kate Beckinsale doesn’t miss a beat" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph If you're inspired by the Love & Friendship Q&A, you can purchase Austen's original novella 'Lady Susan' from our exclusive book partner Heywood Hill www.heywoodhill.com/shop/curzon-home-cinema
