Chloe Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale in Love & Friendship

The story opens when the beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale, Contraband) visits her in-laws’ estate while waiting for social chatter about her personal indiscretions to pass.  While there, the intelligent, flirtatious, and amusingly egotistical Lady Vernon decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant daughter, Frederica.  Enlisting the assistance of her old friend Alicia (Chloë Sevigny, Mr. Nice), Lady Vernon attracts the simultaneous attention of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.

Blu-ray, DVD and digital extras on Love & Friendship include the making-of featurette “Behind-the-Scenes: Love and Friendship,” where the cast and crew describe their experiences making the film.
