JR Review: The Duchess

I tried out this Netflix staple of mine on Jasmine. The Duchess tells the true story of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, 18th Century aristocrat, fashion icon, and tabloid fodder. It a completely conventional and serviceable period drama if a bit dull at some points.  Georgiana’s unhappy marriage to the Duke, their strange menage-a-trois with her best friend Bess Foster, and her affair with future prime minister Charles Grey should make this movie more interesting than it is but its beautiful costumes make it worth a watch.
