SFIFF Opening Night: Love & Friendship

Whit Stillman - Writer-director Whit Stillman brings a unique sense and sensibility to Love & Friendship, a laugh-out-loud comedy starring Kate Beckinsale as a sassy social climber. Stillman infuses this sharp-witted, frisky tale--based on the Jane Austen novella Lady Susan--with a bubbly effervescence as the widowed Susan (Beckinsale) maneuvers her way through society and finagles her way out of scandal while trying to gain matrimonial advantage for herself and her daughter during a visit to her in-laws. at Castro Theatre - San Francisco, California, United States - Thursday 21st April 2016 (1 Picture)
