The Duchess (2008)

Watched this on the way to New York. It was better than I'd anticipated, though difficult to watch--I guess I haven't thought about the double standards of our Western past for a while. I'm interested in reading the book on which the film is based, Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman, now published as The Duchess. It's a biography and not historical fiction, which makes it more interesting to me than otherwise.
