Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 147: Thu May 26

Love And Friendship (Stillman, 2016): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.30pm


Director Whit Stillman will be at the BFI for a Q&A after his much-praised new film. Kate Beckinsale and ChloĆ« Sevigny are paired up by Stillman once more (The Last Days of Disco) in this adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan. Taking up residence with her in-law’s following an intrigue, Lady Susan is delightful, irresistible and entirely without need of scruples as she sets about making a match for her daughter Frederica – never forgetting about her own requirements, of course.
