The Duchess




If you liked Marie then you will enjoy The Duchess. For as in the
tale of Antoinette, the Duchess of Devonshire is a story of tragedy,
lost love, commitment and devotion.

Recently released to DVD it is a splendid period piece filled with
intrigue, evocative costumes and a glimpse of rich upper English
society as well as a woman's place and purpose in history.

It is well worth a looksee... to wile away a winter's eve.

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire by Thomas Gainsborough, 1787 The Devonshire Collection

I adore Marie and have not seen "The Duchess". I rather think that I would really enjoy that movie. Thanks for the heads up.

I just watched The Duchess Friday night, and it was a very well done movie. I always love the costumes and settings in period dramas.

The Duchess is on my list of films to see, good to know it is definately worth it. Over here much has been made of the parallels with the life of Princess Diana.
I looked up your Robins and was suprised to see how different they are, although more colourful, yours are much more like our Blackbirds or Thrushes. Minus 12! Now that is COLD!

Oh, I just tried to rent it the other night, but it wasn't available. I will definitely try again!

Will check out The Duchess. Thanks for your comments on The Izannah Walker Chronicles - if you scroll back to summer you will find the Strong Museum Izannah dolls featured there. I took a trip there in July - it was great!

I enjoyed this movie too. It took a few days before it was available at our movie rental store but after some persistence I finally got to watch it. She was an incredible woman.

I keep watching this movie over and over. I cannot get enough!
Thanks for the post.
