This is a deliciously sharp comedy based on the Jane Austen novella. A tale of matchmaking and heart-breaking, centred around beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon who has come to Churchill, her in-laws' estate, to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, aided and abetted by her loyal friend Alicia she decides to secure husbands for herself and her long-suffering daughter Frederica. 

Stillman is a natural fit for Austen and is on top form here with a gloriously witty and acerbic tale of romance and realism. 

This film will be introduced by Dr Jenny Graham.
