With no redeeming virtues other than saucy charm and truly Wildean wit, Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) decamps to her sister-in-law Catherine’s elegant country estate to escape the adverse effects of a scandal and secure a replacement for her recently deceased husband.
Quickly starting an affair with Catherine’s much younger brother (Xavier Samuel, Fury), Susan fears that the unexpected arrival of her own wayward daughter (Morfydd Clark, Madame Bovary) will thwart her plans, and so she embarks on dastardly machinations – some involving her equally duplicitous old friend Alicia (Sevigny).
Adapting Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan, writer-director Stillman has wrought a delicious, gorgeously staged comedy of romantic manners, with Beckinsale and Sevigny a particular joy to behold.
