The Duchess

Though adored by the people, the Duchess of Devonshire (Keira Knightley) is not content to sit as a pretty figurehead. Determined to be a major player in affairs of state, she rises to the forefront of the Whig Party and helps usher in reform in late-1700s England. The one thing it seems she cannot do is win the heart of her husband (Ralph Fiennes).

October 10, 2008 - Triangle.com - By Caren Ostrow, The News & Observer

'When one loves someone, one doesn't have to know them well to be sure; one feels it."

And with motherly advice like that, how could anything go wrong?

In "The Duchess," Georgiana of London (a lovely and utterly regal Keira Knightley) has been noticed, plucked from obscurity by the Duke of Devonshire before she is 18. Along with her delightfully position-crazed mother (a proper, convincing Charlotte Rampling), Georgiana cannot believe her own good fortune. Alas, royalty can be deceiving.
