The Duchess

Very good movie, but surprisingly sad. I had never read the book Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, so didn't know the story at all, and had only heard comparisons to Princess Diana - another Spencer - so didn't know what to expect.
I thought it was beautifully filmed, and the costumes were stunning, and the and suffocation of all those corsets was so well portrayed - as well of course as the suffocation of being essentially owned.
