I watched The Duchess tonight. It tells the true story of the Duchess of Devonshire. Her life lived trapped in a loveless marriage, her children and her true love. It is a beautiful reflection of the complexities of society in the 18th century. Of course, the costumes were stunning as well. Michael O'Connor won an Academy Award, a BAFTA and a Satellite for his designs and you can see why. It is a must watch.
Lady Georgiana Cavendish.
1757 - 1806.
