"Jane Austen has never been funnier" ***** Tim Robey, Telegraph
The artfully shrewd and manipulative Lady Susan (Kate Beckinsale in a fascinatingly controlled and siren-like performance), recently widowed, schemes to acquire a husband for herself and her reluctant daughter. A gloriously sharp period romance based on a Jane Austen novella and amplified by Stillman's quick-fire wit and comedic timing.
"one of the deftest feats of literary interpolation in ages." Telegraph
