January Parwich Film Show
LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP
This is a beautiful adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella, Lady Susan, filmed on location in Ireland. With beautiful costumes and fine interiors it is a gem of a film.
Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centres on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has taken up temporary residence at the estate of her in-laws to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, naturally.
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Fry
