The Duchess (movie)

This movie was so heartbreaking and yet managed to inspire a bit of hope near the end.

A woman overcoming neglect, depression, spousal abuse, rape, betrayal, lust, and loss. This movie shows just how far a mother will go for her children and different ways a man can manipulate and abuse a woman, but most importantly it shows a woman overcoming these hardships. It’s not an ideal life, but she managed to find happiness in her situation.

There is one rape scene in this movie, it is not visually graphic, but you hear her screams and I felt I should warn you because I wasn’t warned and I had a hard time handling this scene. Other than that the movie is very good and I recommend it.

Grab the tissues and chocolate and/or ice cream and make it a night.
