The Duchess

The Duchess (2008)

Genre: Biography, Drama, History

This film gave me everything I expected and surprisingly more πŸ˜› . I was expecting a typical period drama about a marriage, problems, a love triangle and some political issue thrown in. The narrative as much as it wasn’t the most thrilling, actually kept me entertained and stayed rather interesting throughout. Keira Knightley was stunning within her performance as the Duchess of Devonshire and I do believe it is one of her best roles yet πŸ˜€ . There are some tough issues within this film but she created a character so likable / understandable that you want to keep watching Β until the end. Ralph Fiennes played a good role (even as a despicable character πŸ˜› ), Hayley Atwell was great (even though her character was my least favourite ) and so was Dominic Cooper. The scenery was pretty good and the costumes helped create a believable period of history πŸ˜› . I didn’t really have a favourite section but mostly Keira Knightley stole the show with her character’s strength and weakness creating some tragic (in a good way) scenes! A very good costume drama that I would recommend (if you like this genre πŸ˜› ) . Enjoy πŸ˜€ !

I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
