'LOVE & FRIENDSHIP' PHOTOS
WITH KATE BECKINSALE
It's been an extremely slow week so far in the movie business, so I will entertain you today with something I've dug out recently: the first photos from two of the upcoming period set movies. Starting with the first poster and some photos from Kate Beckinsale's LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP which is premièring at Sundance this month.
Directed by Whit Stillman, and also starring Chloe Sevigny, Stephen Fry and Xavier Samuel, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP, an adaptation of a Jane Austen short story, revolves around beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. While there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica. Two young men, handsome Reginald DeCourcy and wealthy Sir James Martin, severely complicate her plans.
'TULIP FEVER' PHOTOS
ALICIA VIKANDER & CHRISTOPH WALTZ IN STAR STUDDED MOVIE
Meanwhile, another period set movie we've been announcing for what seems at least five years now TULIP FEVER finally has some photos released revealing lead actors Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz, and also prince Harry's ex girlfriend Cressida Bonas. Set in 17th century Amsterdam, the adaptation of Deborah Moggach novel, follows an artist (Dane DeHaan) who falls for a married young woman (Alicia Vikander) when he's commissioned to paint her portrait by her husband (Christoph Waltz). The pair then invest in the risky tulip market in the hope of building a future together. Dame Judi Dench also joins the cast together with Matthew Morrison and Tom Hollander, Jack O’Connell, Holliday Grainger. Dench will play the Abbess of St. Ursula’s, a rescuer of orphan children, and Morrison will play a drunken bohemian artist.
