Well, I saw The Duchess last night. It was a good film but I was left feeling very negative by the plot, in which the Duke of Devonshire was consistently horrible to the Duchess. I didn't like the modern dialogue either, given that it was a period film. It was very well acted by everybody, however, and the settings were great. Keira is in it virtually all the time, with some long lingering shots which give you the opportunity to take in how beautiful she really is. I felt really sorry for her character. Keira's eyes are so expressive and can speak a thousand words with just a glance or look. She is really suited to these period pieces, but I think she needs to be careful not to be typecast. Curly hair and big floppy hats really suit her though!
