Keira Knightley's The Duchess Teaser Trailer
I was hesitant on running this, but there's nothing better this week, so why not? Keira Knightley stars as Georgiana, the Duchess of Devonshire and Ralph Fiennes stars as the Duke of Devonshire. The Duchess is similar to Marie Antoinette in that it's a period piece about the most fashionable person in all of Europe (at the time). My gripe is that I'm tired of these epic period pieces and especially tired of period pieces with Keira Knightley - Atonement wasn't as mind blowing as everyone is making it out to be. The only period movie I really want to see next year is The Other Boleyn Girl. Have a look for yourself, if you dare.
Watch the teaser trailer for The Duchess:
The Duchess is directed by Saul Dibb, who's only previously film is Bullet Boy. The script was written by Jeffrey Hatcher (Casanova) and Anders Thomas Jensen (After the Wedding) and is adapted from a novel by Amanda Foreman titled Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire. The film doesn't have a release date set yet, but will arrive sometime in 2008.
