Love & Friendship / Ireland, France, Netherlands (Director and screenwriter: Whit Stillman) — From Jane Austen’s novella, the beautiful and cunning Lady Susan Vernon visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors of her dalliances and to find husbands for herself and her daughter. Two young men, handsome Reginald DeCourcy and wealthy Sir James Martin, severely complicate her plans. Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel, Emma Greenwell, Tom Bennett, Stephen Fry. World Premiere
As many of you will remember, Sevigny, Stillman and Beckinsale previously collaborated on the cult classic Last Days of Disco in 1998. More recently, Chloë also appeared in Stillman’s Amazon pilot The Cosmopolitans in 2014, the fate of which is still pending an update from Amazon.
Chloë will be well-represented at Sundance this year, as it was announced three weeks ago that Danny Perez’s indie horror Antibirth would also be screening at the festival as part of its “Midnight” line-up.
