Scheming, selfish and recently widowed Lady Susan is in need of a new husband. Taking refuge in the countryside estate of her in-laws Lady Catherine and Charles Vernon she sets her eyes on Catherine’s dashing brother Reginald DeCourcy. Yet the sudden arrival of her daughter Frederica, contrastingly modest and timid, interferes with her plan. Determined to get Frederica out of the way by marrying her off to a buffoon called Sir James Martin, Lady Susan and her despicable confidante Alicia’s devious plans are put to the test in this brilliantly sharp parody of 19th century societal conventions. This is a sparkling, witty introduction to the daringly irreverent language and tone Jane Austen honed in her later novels, lovingly brought to life by a director adept at the acerbic comedy of manners.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
