Emily Beecham addresses The Pursuit of Love co-stars Lily James and Dominic West’s scandal | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
In an interview with Rollacoaster, the actress said: “I think The Pursuit of Love will be actually the tonic that people need right now.
“It is a complete departure from our time into the war period, which makes it really compelling escapism.
“The Pursuit of Love was considered quite a radical book at the time when it came out and I think it still is in many ways.
“It is about sexual politics and adulthood and ageing and friendship and sex and ambition while also managing to be really funny.
“Nancy Mitford’s writing is really witty and sharp, but she has a very satirical humour with edgier, darker undertones to it.”
