The Duchess United Kingdom Trailer

An international trailer of the Duchess has shown up:

Two women related by ancestry,
United by Destiny:

This summer, History repeats itself!

She won the hearts of the people,
but could not follow her own...

Based on a remarkable true story.


This trailer must be targeting people reading the Sun... It does not put emphasis on Georgiana involvement in politics, it just tries to draw a parallel between the Duchess and her descendant Lady Di. How pitiful!

I believe the movie is much more interesting than this trailer of the Duchess may show though.

Keira Knightley is the Duchess.
It is fortunate for the United Kingdom that liberal thinkers helped the society to overhaul itself without the need for a bloody revolution. The Duchess if one of them: behind the scandalous aspects of Duchess Georgiana's life there is a woman who fought for the right of the people!

The Duchess First Official Teaser

18th-century English aristocrat Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, was a woman ahead of her time. Her liberal demeanor was not without provoking controversy.

An upcoming movie titled the Duchess proposes to discover further the life of this exceptional woman, who by the way is a direct ancestor of Lady Diana.

The movie is directed by Saul Dibb and is starring Keira Knightley as Georgiana and Ralph Fiennes as her husband. It is scheduled for release in September 2008.

Here below the first official teaser trailer of The Duchess:


"A chronicle of the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who was reviled for her extravagant political and personal life." (IMDb)

As glamorous and adored by the public as her descendant, the Duchess was also the target of vilification campaigns trying to smear her reputation. But this strong woman was one of the first feminist and marked her time!

The movie is based on a biography written Amanda Foreman. The Duchess is an appealing history drama movie.
