Cult filmmaker Whit Stillman brilliantly reimagines Jane Austen’s Lady Susan.

A charming comedy of manners set in the 1790s, Love & Friendship centers on Lady Susan Vernon: impossibly beautiful, charming, clever, and completely self-absorbed. Recently widowed, Lady Susan arrives, unannounced, at her brother-in-law’s estate to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. While there, she becomes determined to secure a new husband for herself, and one for her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica, too. As Lady Susan embarks on a controversial relationship with a married man,—seduction, deception, broken hearts, and gossip all ensue.

Jane Austen’s funniest novel is also her least known—until now. With a pitch-perfect Austenian sensibility, Stillman breathes new life into Austen’s work, modernizing and making it his own by adding original narration from a character comically loyal to the story’s fiendishly manipulative heroine, Lady Susan.
