Keira Knightley brought every stage of the Duchess to life. The hope for marriage when she was a girl, the helplessness of being betrayed soon after the newly married, the anger when she was betrayed by her best friend, her eyes and even her back figure are all perfecting the image of her character.

The most anticipated is the love between her and Gray, from the publicity of the girlhood, to the catharsis after the emotional depression to the extreme, the love for each other, the separation forced by reality, and the forbearance when they meet again. This ending may be tragic for true love. The Duchess should pursue true love and pursue the new world independently and freely. But she is not only a duchess, she is also a mother, and true love is not just love, but also maternal love. That's why Gray finally let go.

In fact, the final outcome is already very happy. She still blooms in the center of politics and social circles, and the people she loves are happy and those who love her get what they want. It's just that the freedom she originally understood is infinite, and it doesn't work in this world. Freedom is limited, and some of us can make our own choices within the limited freedom. Grasping what you want and can want is already the greatest happiness.

    I hardly knew it was Ralph Fiennes at the time. . . The plot is trivial.

    The clothes are really gorgeous! The British aristocrats at that time were really gorgeous and splendid, accompanied by complexity and discomfort~ The Duchess's life since marriage made me want to commit suicide, but fortunately, she had a child with the person she loved, and the Duke did not block Gray~
