A hat sort of day: Kate Bechinsale and Cloe Sevigny in the film version of Jane Austen’s Lady Susan

Pining for another Pride and Prejudice remake? Fear not, Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan is brought to the screen at Bristol’s Watershed in May when Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny reunite with director Whit Stillman donning hats, cloaks and empire line gowns.
