I know, that's what I thought. I was really insanely looking foreward to this film - and this trailer was just a big bummer to me.
But then again, to be fair; Ralph Fiennes choses his films carefully. He rarely misses, his films are usually cheered for by critics (okay, he slipped at Maid In Manhattan, but we're all alowed one second chance right?). Let's hope this time won't be different! His upcoming film In Bruges is already getting a lot of praise while during the filming the entire crew thought it would be crap... so maybe The Duchess will prove us wrong.
I just hope it isn't as much of a stereotype period piece as I think it is. And I just hope Keira and Ralph's scenes together aren't as awkward as they looked to me in the trailer.
