Back in late 2007, movie lovers are given the chance to get a look inside the upcoming drama movie "The Duchess" through the release of its arguably short trailer. Fast forwarded to June 2008 nearly six months after the exposing of that trailer, another video footage promoting the Paramount Vantage's film starring Keira Knightley comes out and it is the international version of the trailer.
If the domestic trailer serves as the introduction to the scandalous Duchess of Devonshire herself, the international trailer provides comparison between Georgiana Cavendish and her famed descendant, the England lovable princess Lady Diana. In the opening sequences of the trailer, when a man gives an eulogistic introduction of the English aristocrat, the clips show the fading portrait of the former Princess of Wales for several times and suggest that years later Georgiana's legacy is followed by the people princess.
Based on the biography of the talked about Duchess written by Amanda Foreman, "Duchess" resolves its story on the outrageous life of Georgiana as she charms every man getting close to her but fails miserably in seducing her own husband. The feature film originally was set to be directed by Susanne Bier, but later she was replaced by Saul Dibb. Aside from Knightley, the film, which will be released in limited theaters on September 19, features also Ralph Fiennes, Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper and Charlotte Rampling.
