Love & Friendship (Guest Speaker event)

October 4

In association with Wimbledon Bookfest Lady Susan, recently widowed and the subject of a scandal, looks for a husband for her daughter and herself. Based on an early Jane Austen novella, the story transfers to the screen as the wittiest of romps, meticulously realised and acted with relish. Beckinsale and Samuel stand out from a wonderful array of performances in a top flight cast.

Plus Q&A with screen writer Elizabeth Clegg on page-to-film adaptation
