Movie: The Duchess

We have a love for period piece romances with Kiera Knightley, so of course we had to pick up The Duchess as soon as it came out on DVD (Or Blu-Ray). The scenery and rooms are beautiful and the costumes are bizarre and elaborate, everything you could want from a Victorian England movie.

Kiera Knightley plays Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire; a real historical figure known for her beauty, political clout, and fashion sense. She marries the Duke at a young age and tries her best to give him a male heir while he is repeatedly unfaithful. She spends her whole life searching for what really matters, looking for love and satisfaction in a wild and beautiful world.

Quick vote: This movie is pretty much exactly what you would expect. But we love it, and so will you if you liked great movies like Pride and Prejudice.
