Yes, but very likable in the same charming way that Lady Susan is in your film. Do you think there could have been a Golden Age of Hollywood version of Love & Friendship?
I don’t know, I suppose so. They would normally put this kind of story in a present-day setting. I’m not sure what they would have done with a period setting. But actually, Kate and I are both very interested in doing a ’30s flavoured film, so I think you’re right that those could be inspirations.
Whit Stillman masterfully directs the final film of his “doomed bourgeois in love” trilogy with witty insight into the desires and delusions of a young upper class. Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny star as friends and roommates who must deal with the changing dynamics of their social group at the end of the disco era. Beckinsale is brilliant as the spiteful, sexy, and sad Charlotte in this film about finding fulfillment in a changing world.
