Amazon Original Movie Love & Friendship will Premiere on Amazon Prime Video October 20

Based on the Jane Austen novella, Lady Susan, the film stars Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny

SEATTLE -- Oct. 11, 2016 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon Studios today announced that the Amazon Original Movie Love & Friendship will be available through Amazon Prime Video at no additional cost to Prime members on October 20. The acclaimed film based on a novella by Jane Austen is written and directed by Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco), stars Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Pearl Harbor), Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don't Cry, Big Love), Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Fury), Emma Greenwell (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Shameless) and Tom Bennett (Mascots, PhoneShop), and produced by Katie Holly (Citadel, Shrooms) and Lauranne Bourrachot (A Prophet, Sleepless Night), and co-produced by Raymond van der Kaaij (They Have Escaped, 22nd of May) and Marco Cherqui (A Prophet, Sleepless Night).

Love & Friendship premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and was released in theaters on May 13, 2016 to great critical response. The film is "Certified Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes where it maintains a 98% Fresh rating. Here's what some have said about the film:

· "As adaptations go, this is a match made in heaven"- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

· "It's the Whit Stillman movie that some of us have been waiting a long time for, and also a Jane Austen movie that goes some way toward correcting the record of dull and dutiful cinematic Janeism." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times

· "The sharpest, least sentimental and possibly the best version of Austen yet." - Farran Smith Nehme, The New York Post

· "The language, a lyrical blend of Jane Austen and Whit Stillman, bewitches even as it stings. A sublime Kate Beckinsale digs into the role of her career. Pure pleasure." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

· "A supremely elegant and delicately filigreed adaptation of Jane Austen's epistolary novella "Lady Susan." - Justin Chang, Variety

"Love & Friendship brings to life Jane Austen's novella in a captivating comedic style thanks to Whit Stillman's unique voice and filmmaking coupled with amazing acting by Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny," said Jason Ropell, Worldwide Head of Motion Pictures, Amazon Studios. "We're thrilled that after a successful theatrical run, the Amazon Original Movie will be available this month for our Prime members to stream and enjoy."

Beautiful, young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica (Clark). In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy (Samuel), the rich and silly Sir James Martin (Bennett) and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.

Not available on any other subscription services, Love & Friendship will be available for Prime members to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership. Prime members will also be able to download the film to mobile devices for offline viewing.
