Grete Gerwig portrays Maggie Hardin, a vibrant thirty-something New Yorker working in education. Unsuccessful in finding love, she decides now is the time to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), married anthropology professor and struggling novelist, Maggie falls in love for the first time and adjusts her plans for motherhood. “[A] sneakily winning romantic comedy that, despite its ungainliness and sometimes irritatingly broad characters, brings welcome sharpness to a genre usually awash in soft-focus hearts and flowers. A remarriage farce set in the rarefied, jargon-filled world of New York academia…filmmaker Rebecca Miller’s venture into satire takes a comfortable place on a shelf already occupied by Woody Allen, Noah Baumbach and Nicole Holofcener.

Love and Friendship is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan, believed to have been written in the mid 1790s but revised up to a fair copy prepared in 1805 and finally published in 1871 by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh. In the 1790s, beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) has come to Churchill, the estate of her in-laws, to wait out rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. While there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and for her daughter, Frederica, played by Morfydd Clark. Chloe Sevigny plays Lady Susan’s friend and confidante Alicia Johnson, with Stephen Fry and her husband, the “very respectable” Mr. Johnson.
