The synopsis reads: "The Pursuit Of Love is a romantic comedy-drama about love and friendship. Set in Europe between the two World Wars, the story follows the adventures and misadventures of the charismatic and fearless Linda Radlett, played by Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Rebecca, Cinderella, Baby Driver) and her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan, played by Emily Beecham (Little Joe, Cruella)."

Lily, 31, was in an on-off relationship with her boyfriend Matt Smith, who plays a young Prince Philip in The Crown. The pair dated for five years before officially splitting this year.

In an interview last month with Harper's Bazaar, the former Downton Abbey actress revealed she wished she could tell herself not to be so "obsessed with boys" while she was growing up. "Don't be obsessed by boys," Lily shared. "Hang out with your girl mates. And don't take everything so seriously – be kind to yourself."

"Lots of girlfriends said to me, 'Oh, you feel so much relief in your thirties, you know who you are,'" she explained. "I thought I was there, but then realised I'm actually not. I think I'll probably always be quite a 'searching' person... I can't picture getting to a point where I'll feel like, 'Oh, I've grown.' I still feel like a child."
