THE DUCHESS; With her marriage to the duke (Ralph Fiennes), Georgiana Spenser, the Duchess of Devonshire (Keira Knightley), achieves an impressive level of fame as Britons follow both her clothing style and her political advice. But even celebrity and wealth can't act as a salve in her marriage to the boring, boorish duke. When he begins to flaunt his affairs, Georgiana is tempted to return to a teenage crush, Charles Grey (Dominic Cooper), to the anger of her husband and her mother (Charlotte Rampling). This release also includes THE QUEEN, which takes a look at an eventful period of British history - the death of Princess Diana. Helen Mirren gives an astonishing performance as the monarch. She injects a sense of vulnerability and complexity to a person who is very private about her personal life. Michael Sheen also produces an excellent display as Tony Blair, having to use all the diplomacy he can muster. Stephen Frears’ film is a superb reconstruction of what may have happened behind the scenes during a traumatic period.
