ELFs & Monoplexx: Love & Friendship
Set in the 1790's Love & Friendship follows recently widowed Lady Susan in her intrepid and calculating exploits to secure suitably wealthy husbands for her daughter and herself in order to renew the state of her fortunes.
This is a terrifically brittle account of a middle-aged woman who brilliantly manipulates those around her through a mixture of intelligence, elegance, and fox-like cunning. Kate Beckinsale is superb as Lady Susan Vernon, and Tom Bennett is truly a joy to watch as a wealthy blockhead called Sir James Martin.
Love & Friendship is a refreshing and invigorating delight.
