Synopsis


The Duchess
Director Saul Dibb takes the helm for this period drama adapted from Amanda Foreman's best-selling novel Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, documenting the romantic entanglements of Georgiana Cavendish (Keira Knightley), a beautiful and clever woman who becomes a celebrity of British high society when she marries the Duke of Devonshire (Ralph Fiennes) and becomes consort to one of the most powerful men in England. Beloved for her trend-setting fashion designs as well as her political activism, Georgiana's fire and wit make her a beloved figure everywhere but her own home, where her cold and distant husband's control over her is stifling, soon sending her into the arms of a another man -- an act that soon forces her to learn about the brutal difference in the rights afforded to 18th century men and women. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Best Drama of the Year

    The Duchess was an excellent movie. I would say it is the best movie to come out in 2008. Keira Knightley makes an outstanding performance playing alongside Ralph Fiennes. She also proves she can play any role and be the best at it. The love triangle makes the story interesting throughout the whole movie. It was absolutely amazing. The acting was incredible and so was the drama. If you're looking for a movie that moves you emotionally this is the movie you want to see. The affair the occurs between Lady Georgianna and Charles Grey makes the movie so romantic. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who has wonderful taste in movies.

    An interesting story of England’s aristocratic landed society in the later 18th Century – their politics, morals, family relationships and their infidelities. Both Keira Knightly and Ralph Fienns superbly and believably acted-out their respective roles thus the pleasurable viewing experience.
