no fault

Bonus points for the picture, bonus points for the soundtrack, and the script drags down the overall production. The plot is flat as water, Georgiana's fashion, social skills, and political skills are almost unconvincing. Judging from the performance of the film, it is not so much to praise her personal charm as to pursue the title of "duchess". The extramarital affair was also handled sloppily, but fortunately the part about giving away the children gave Keira Knightley some acting skills. Although the background of the era can be inferred from the dialogue, it is almost not reflected in substance, which makes the Whig party's election become a tasteless existence in the film. Perhaps the film was originally ambitious, intending to show Georgiana's ability and charm from multiple angles, but what the audience actually remembered in the end was the emotional entanglement between several protagonists.

    "The Duchess" This film is based on the story of Georgiana, the Duchess of Devonshire, a topical figure in the 18th century, and is adapted from a biography written by Amanda Foreman. Tsk tsk, but I think the story is too similar to Princess Diana’s body. It’s not easy to be able to do this. The third person, no matter what the reason or the hardship, can be the wife of a friend. died

    How should I say I like Douyou's comment "After love is absent, we become hard stones and live stubbornly" I admire G so much that she still does not let the hypocritical Londoners see a woman with a good joke~

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?
