On Thursday I attended a screening of “The Duchess” at Paramount Studios. The screening, offered by the group Women and Film, was followed up by a Q and A with Amanda Foreman, the author of “Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire”, the book the script was based on.
The Duchess is a beautiful film. The performances given by Keira Knightley and Ray Fiennes were amazing. Keira Knightley brought such depth and vulnerability to the role of Georgiana. The story was heart-wrenching and beautifully shot. I feel compelled to read the book next!
Special Thanks to my friend and fellow actress, Debra Lynn Hull, for the invite!
