Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon visits to the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society.
Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica.
In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.
The new film stars Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, and Xavier Samuel. Written and Directed by Whit Stillman.
