"The Duchess" Is Coming!!!

View the trailer for this biopic about Georgina, the Duchess of Devonshire. It's adapted from a bestselling biography by Amanda Foreman and stars Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes. I'm excited for this (comes out in late August) even though I'm feeling a bit of Knightley fatigue these days.

For further reading, here's a fun blog devoted to the Duchess and her cohorts of the age.

    I was looking forward to this, but alas Miss Knightly is once again the pouting lead. I must of course reserve judgment until i see it, but i have a very grave fear that she will spoil this film for me....:(

    Agreed. I don't want Keira to annoy me. And yet, she's starting to. Something about the squint-eye and the pout combined. But she does pick movies I want to see, so I'll give her credit for that. -- Amy

    Oh wow I have that biography. Better read it before I see the movie. :D
