Woman, who understands you?

I watched the movie several times and read a lot of comments, but I didn't quite find what I liked, so I decided to write it myself. I have always liked this kind of movies from a female perspective. Many people are unaccustomed to focusing too much on the costumes or the content. I also disagree. In my opinion, since the movie is for people to watch, the beautiful picture Feeling is also indispensable, not to mention that fashion dress is not a reflection of that society, and is not part of the theme of the article? As for clichés, life, back and forth is not such a thing, even if it is a story that is thought to be earth-shattering and weeping ghosts and gods thousands of times in different time and space.
The Duchess is idealistic, and the Duke is the exact opposite, and I would like to see that as the conflict.
When she and Fox talked about freedom, the duke left the table in disgust. They really aren't all the way.
But when the Duke stood at the window and watched the lively G, I believe her innocence really touched him. That's why he interrupted her mother's praise of her daughter like a sale, so he reluctantly said thank you after his entourage said his responsibility. On their wedding night, he said why women's clothes are so cumbersome, and G said that women can only express themselves through clothing, unlike men who have many ways. The Duke's tasteful pause must not have thought that this was a soul that was too ideal and full of freedom. Perhaps his first reaction when he heard this sentence was, in the world of men, women should also express themselves? So the Duke felt what he thought was childish, and saw through her essence, while the idealistic G couldn't understand the unsmiling Duke, his pragmatic attitude, and the softness that covered it. That's why the Duke was indifferent to her.
And Elizabeth, a smart woman, understands the Duke, she will take the Duke as the center, and she can be a foil willingly. She only wants what she wants. To see her child, she can only count on the powerful and powerful duke, so she rejected the duke on the surface, but approaching G and then approaching the duke, this must be within her plan, otherwise she is as smart and stable as her, how can she be at the banquet There was such a dialogue with G at the meeting. In love with understanding, the duke insisted on the open lover, and eventually gave the position of the duchess. I have to say that Elizabeth is a woman with a strong heart. Isn't she wronged? But she knew what she wanted.
In contrast, G's heart is too weak, and she is always passive. Knowing that she was going to be a duchess, she was overjoyed, because she thought the high-ranking duke liked her, and when she contacted Gray later, it was Elizabeth who told her that Gray had feelings for her, otherwise, how could she take the initiative to ask him if he missed her. As Gray said, she was always trying to please others, and she always wanted to be affirmed from others.
But I don't see this as her fault, or even if it were her fault, she was still attractive. She could answer his husband's questions the way she did on their wedding night, he was so engrossed in talking about freedom with politicians, and she was drawn to Gray's fiery speech. Her and Gray's romantic idealism does feel like a match made in heaven, but in the end, when Gray said he wanted her to have a baby for him, I think she was really cold, woman, who understands you. And those girls who were never seen by the Duke when they were born, how are you going to grow up?
(Writing and writing is still a bit deviating from what I thought at the beginning. I haven’t written anything for a long time, and it’s confusing.)

    I admire the French movie "Rules of the Game" very much. Different people live in different environments, but each environment has its own rules, and people either follow the rules or are destroyed. Has Georgian resisted? Yes, but only once, and finally returned to the rules. So after I watched this movie, I found that there was basically nothing left to memorize. Kayla’s performance is very boring, besides frequent changes of clothes (to respect history, the clothes are very similar to the portraits of Devonshire ladies in history) but also attract my attention. The Duke is a very chewy figure, and everything else can be ignored, including the one who later became the prime minister. I don't like to compare Georgian to Diana, just because they are relatives? What would happen to the story of Louise de Kérouaille, the mistress of Charles II, whose descendants are Diana and Camilla.

The Duchess quotes

  • Speechmaker: When she arrives, all eyes are upon her. When absent, she is the subject of universal conversation. And what we see her wearing tonight, I look forward to seeing the rest of you wearing tomorrow!

  • Georgiana, The Duchess of Devonshire: Of all the women in England, you had to throw yourself on her. I have never objected to any of your affairs. I have accepted whatever arrangement you have proposed. But this... I have one single thing of my own. Why couldn't you let me keep Elizabeth for myself? What kind of man are you? She is my sole comfort in our marriage. You have robbed me of my only friend. What is wrong with me?
