Well, I saw "The Duchess" yesterday and let me say that I am SO happy not to have waited for it to come out on was superb viewing on the big screen. The decorations were sumptuous and could very easily imagine onself transported back to 18th century England. The Louix XV furniture in the Duchess's private salon took my breath away...the part where poor Georgianna hands over baby Eliza to the Greys just broke my heart. Both Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes gave great performances. Ralph usually makes me swoon, but his portrayal of the Duke of Devonshire made me hate him for a minute LOL!

I think all the references to the late Princess of Wales are simply to try and hype interest in the film...these ARE her ancestors after all, and the opening scene of the film takes place at Althorp(not the real Althorp of course...I don't think Earl Spencer allowed them to film there)

I forgot to ask this before: was Georgiana's son, Hart, actually the result of her being raped by the Duke or was that added simply for dramatic effect?

Diana's raunchy ancestor: Keira's new film reveals the tragic life of Lady Georgiana Spencer | Mail Online

Just sawed the movie, The Duchess. I thought it was well made.

I could not stop thinking about how Lady Georgiana Spencer and Diana, Princess of Wales have many similarities about how their marriages worked out.
Watch your actions, for they become your habits. Watch your habits because they become your character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

I think that Keira Knightly is wonderful in this movie as well as in Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. She is the actress of the moment and she merits the Oscar!!

No, actually it wasn't assault, but the result of the usual marital bonking. She gave birth to her son while vacationing in Brussells or somewhere on the Continent.
