Lady Susan Vernon takes up temporary residence at her in-laws' estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica -- and herself too, naturally.
All of Kate Beckinsale's costumes and the majority of Chloë Sevigny's were custom-designed, despite a limited budget.
Lady Susan Vernon:
Ah, mortality. Our mortality and that of others, but most particularly our own, is the hardest and most intractable hand life can deal us.
Lady Susan puts perfume in one hand, but smells the other.
At the conclusion of the end credits, there is a line encouraging viewers to read the novel, "in which Lady Susan Vernon is thoroughly vindicated."
