PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
A chronicle of the life of 18th-century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who was reviled for her extravagant political and personal life.
The film was heavily marketed with links to Princess Diana (who is a direct descendant of Georgiana's family, The Spencers), using her image in the trailers, and with a tagline ("There were three people in her marriage") which is a play upon a quote attributed to the late Royal. Keira Knightley came out and denied the film had any links at all, stating that her character was interesting enough without any comparisons.
Georgiana, The Duchess of Devonshire:
Of all the women in England you had to throw yourself on her!
The Duke is presented as (and played by) a man much older than the Duchess, old enough to be her father. The real Duke was only about eight years older than her. When they married, she was 17 and he was 25.
Paramount Vantage preferred a PG-13 version for the United States and in order to get that rating some cuts and alternate shots were used.
