It is a truth almost universally acknowledged that films of Jane Austen books wind up with a spunky but sweet heroine getting her man. Not this time. In Whit Stillman’s film of Austen’s novella “Lady Susan,” the heroine is a ruthless schemer who gets a man – or men, plural – rather than a comeuppance. In “Patt Morrison Asks,” Stillman describes how he came to partner with Austen for the new film and book, “Love & Friendship.”
