It's on Netflix. I like the 18th century.
LOOL!huuno the Duchess movie was a terrible, terrible, story of telling of a magnificent woman. Really a shame.
I watched for the costume, houses, decors etc etc
The actors portraying the characters got them good too but the dialogue and story is poor.
They should have hired me.
You've read too many novels.I would have started the movie with the young duchess competiting to get the duke for marriage with other ladies. In real life it was a fierce campaign lead by the duchess mother.
then make the wedding look spectacular! lol Every body love a big wedding.
Her mother would have had a big part in the movie,
Then she gets the man, then she realizes she made a mistake, but then says fk it, i am going to enjoy the prestige and glamour
Then she goes to paris and leaves a life of wonder & fun
and comes back to reunite with husband and live happily ever after
oh wait maybe make a drama out of who gave birth to the son and heir!
her or her best friend who both slept with the duke
