A Most Determined Mother

You guys!

Looks like Kate Beckinsale has found herself a(nother) meaty role worthy of her talent, and said role has found itself an actress cheeky enough to take it to a whole new level.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association Award-nominated actress will soon be seen in Love & Friendship, Academy Award nominee Whit Stillman’s adaptation of Lady Susan, the epistolary short novel by Jane Austen, about a widow scheming to land herself and her daughter a couple of husbands.

The delightful-looking comedy of manners reunites Beckinsale with ChloĆ« Sevigny, with whom she co-starred in Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco, and features up-and-comer Morfydd Clark, Adore’s Xavier Samuel, and Stephen Fry.

The Sundance-approved film is scheduled to open the 59th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival later this month and open in select theaters on May 13 – and I am so looking forward to seeing Beckinsale shine in this one.

She doesn’t often get the chance to, y’ know.
