Kate Beckinsale shines as the cynical and unbelievably manipulative mother who is quite determined to have her daughter married well.
In 18th century England, the widowed Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) attempts to solve her financial problems by landing a wealthy husband during a visit to her in-laws.
However, her scheming is complicated by the sudden appearance of her teenage daughter Frederica (Morfydd Clark), and soon the two women are caught up in a love rectangle with a courtier (Xavier Samuel) and a suitor who’s as rich as he is stupid (Tom Bennett).
Chloë Sevigny co-stars as a friend of Susan’s who tries to help with her matchmaking.
Written and directed by Whit Stillman (who adapted the script from an early work by Jane Austen), Love & Friendship made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
Tickets available online (book now), or from Celtic Gold (Peel), Shakti Man (Ramsey) and Thompson Travel (Port Erin) or on the door (unless sold out).
