I’m a big fan of watching movies that have been adapted from books, and occasionally the movie is actually better. To embrase this interest of mine I’ve started a weekly post to feature books that are hitting the big screen.
Release Date: May 13
Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centers on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica.
With the exception of a short, this will be the first feature-length film of Lady Susan (why it is called Love & Friendship don’t ask me) . It is adapted to the big screen by Whit Stillman and is scheduled to hit the big screens on May 13 with Kate Beckinsale slated to be Lady Susan Vernon.
