VIDEO: KATE BECKINSALE ON LOVE & FRIENDSHIP, WHIT STILLMAN & TOM BENNETT

Kate Beckinsale talks about Love & Friendship, where she stars as the brilliant, charming and manipulative Lady Susan Vernon. She is a widow in search of sound prospects for her daughter and herself. The film is based on a Jane Austen’s  epistolary novel called Lady Susan. This kind of novel is usually told via letters and diary entries, but in the hands of writer and director Whit Stillman the novel turns into a delightful & pithy film.

We spoke with Beckinsale during her visit to San Francisco International Film Festival about how she prepared for the role, working with Stillman and Tom Bennett, who acts in the film. Tune in to find out this about about Beckinsale’s next project.

Love and Friendship releases on May 20, 2016 in San Francisco Bay area.
