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.
This will be the second time Kate Beckinsale has starred as a character from a Jane Austen book. She previously portrayed Emma Woodhouse in Emma (1996) TV movie (not to be confused with the one starring Gwyneth Paltrow of the same year).
Lady Susan Vernon:
I had a feeling that the great word 'respectable' would some day divide 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."
