Keira Knightley Plays Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire
Posted on October 1, 2008
The movie The Duchess chronicles the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Keira Knightley (Georgiana) and Ralph Fiennes (Duke of Devonshire) star in the film. Marriage isn't what Georgiana was expecting as the Duke seems to think it's okay for him to find other lovers. Knightley says Georgiana is this "incredibly romantic kind of idealistic girl who unfortunately gets a dose of reality." The costumes and casting all look to be perfect. The AP says the movie gets a little steamy as well.
