Synopsis

This tells the true story of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, who rebelled against what was expected of a woman of her position in society. A figure of high fashion, feted by the public, Georgiana is stuck in an unhappy marriage to the emotionally chilly Duke of Devonshire, who moves his mistress into their home. When she falls in love with a dashing politician, she must chose between him and her young children. This lavish British costume drama features a fine performance from Keira Knightley in the title role.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
