News from Rotterdam where Irish co-production ‘Love & Friendship’ landed more sales with Cineart striking a deal with Protagonist Pictures.

The film, which is nominated for the VPO Big Screen Award at IFFR, made its’ premiere at Sundance last month where it was acquired by Curzon Artificial Eye for UK distribution. Amazon Studios secured US rights last year. Cineart will release the film in Benelux in the summer.

Shot in February and March 2015 in Dublin, ‘Love and Friendship’ is an Irish/French/Dutch co-production between Westerly Films, Blinder Films, Chic Films, Revolver Films, Irish Film Board, Arte and the Netherlands Film Fund.

The Irish producer is Katie Holly of Blinder Films and the Line Producer is Cathleen Dore.

Directed by Oscar nominee Whit Stillman (‘Metropolitan’), the film stars Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny in the lead roles (re-uniting them with Stillman after 1998’s ‘The Last Days of Disco’).

The film is based on Stillman’s adaptation of the Jane Austen’s Lady Susan – a novella that Austen never submitted for publication which describes the schemes of the main character, the widowed Lady Susan (played by Beckinsale), as she seeks a new husband for herself and one for her daughter.
