Catch a special Q & A preview screening of Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship with Aussie actor, Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga) at The Orpheum, Cremorne on Wednesday 13th July at 6:20pm, with the Q & A to follow.
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 (Chloë 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 (Xavier Samuel) and wealthy Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett), severely complicate their plans.
