The Duchess and Me
Que up those Netflix's ladies!! This one's a winner. It's slightly predictable, a little slow, but MY GOODNESS! The costumes are FABULOUS!! Every scene seems to be centered around them.
Also, there's a fairly good love story, and some top actors ... A worthwhile flick :)
The lead character, Georgiana (called "Gee") is the newly married Duchess of Devonshire. The guy turns out to be a total cold fish/controlling/jerk. And chaos insues!! There is meant to be a comparison between the Duchess and Princess Diana (of whom she is supposed to be distantly related.)
Whatever, I don't think Prince Charles looks like that bad of a character.
On a related note: Rich and I are starting to seriously plan out a trip to England this summer. GASP.
I am SOO nervous, but I excited, and I know I have to do it now, because who knows if I'll ever have the opportunity again?
We are thinking we will be centered in London, and just take a few day trips to some cool cities/ castles/ etc....plus spend a lot of time doing all the touristy stuff in London.
Any suggestions are welcome :)
