Love and Friendship Movie Release and Giveaway

We are thrilled to be working with Roadside Attractions to bring you a most excellent Smugglerific Giveaway to celebrate a charming new movie out in theaters this spring: Love and Friendship, based on Jane Austen’s comic gem and in theaters this May.

About the Movie:

Love and Friendship

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP is an adaptation of young Jane Austenโ€™s novella Lady Susan, believed to have been written in the mid 1790s but revised up to a fair copy prepared in 1805 and finally published by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, in 1871.

Set in the 1790s, earlier than most Austen tales, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP concerns beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) who has come to Churchill, the estate of her in-laws, to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society.

Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and for her daughter, Frederica, played by Morfydd Clark.

Chloรซ Sevigny, who starred with Beckinsale in Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco (1998), plays Lady Susanโ€™s friend and confidante Alicia Johnson, with Stephen Fry as her husband, the “very Respectable” Mr. Johnson.

The waters are troubled by the arrival at Churchill of the handsome, eligible Reginald DeCourcy (Xavier Samuel) and silly but cheerful — and very rich — Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett).

Lady Susan’s designs are vehemently opposed by the DeCourcy clan: Reginald’s sister, Catherine DeCourcy Vernon (Emma Greenwell); his mother, Lady DeCourcy (Jemma Redgrave) and father, Sir Reginald DeCourcy (James Fleet). But Susan’s brother-in-law, magnanimous Charles Vernon (Justin Edwards), prefers to see her, and everyone, with a benevolent regard.

After a series of dramatic turns at Churchill, Lady Susan finally risks destruction when her jealous rival, Lady Lucy Manwaring (Jenn Murray), arrives in London to make a shocking revelation, leading to the denouement of denouements.

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP is produced by Whit Stillman, Katie Holly and Lauranne Bourrachot, and co-produced by Raymond van der Kaaij.

    So, I feel I’ve committed a Literary Sin and I must admit… I’ve never actually read Austen. *ducks out of sight, hiding from the rotten cabbage surely thrown*
    But I’m sure I would love the books- because I love the film adaptations! My favorite would HAVE to be “Pride and Prejudice” (2005). Beautiful cinematography, full of wonderful layers of human characters… I adore it completely.
    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! ^^

    I hadn’t watched the trailer till I saw this post, and now I am dying to see this movie. It looks like SO much fun.

    As for my favorite, I’m torn between saying Clueless (which I have watched a thousand times), Sense and Sensibility (which is straight pleasure with Alan Rickman), and Mansfield Park, which is the least faithful adaptation, but which makes an entertaining movie out of my least favorite Austen book.

    Cannot WAIT for Love & Friendship!
