Love & Friendship - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon visits to the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica. In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.

MOVIE REVIEW

My father-in-law’s analysis of Love & Friendship sums up the new Jane Austen adaptation well: it would be better suited as a play I wouldn't watch. Despite a strong performance by Kate Beckinsale and a witty, genre-defying screenplay, the movie is still an inaccessible costume drama that may appeal to certain [and generally older] audience segments and cinephiles, but few others.
