This competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winners: Ericka Heathfield, Jane Peake, Clare Green, Olivia Zinan, and Jan Green.
Lovers of Jane Austen, the Brontes, Downton Abbey and the Victorian era will delight in LOVE & FRIENDSHIP – an adaptation of young Jane Austen’s novella, Lady Susan.
Set in the 1790s, earlier than most Austen novels, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP concerns beautiful young widow Susan Vernon who has come to Churchill—the estate of her in-laws—to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society.
There are all the things you would expect from an Austen adaptation – romance, beautiful period costumes and settings, plenty of gossip, drama, a dash of wicked humour, and all with an edge.
Kate Beckinsale stars as the young widow, and is well-supported by Chloë Sevigny, Tom Bennett, and Australian Xavier Samuel in his first romantic lead role. LOVE & FRIENDSHIP from Transmission films releases on 21 July. View the trailer – here.
