Actually, *I* was the one who started whispering "3-way" and YOU were the one that started the "4-way" thing!

The lesbian scene was not that hot tho. WAY too short. We never got to see any boobs either.

And for the record, I really just like period movies, and Kiera Knightly, so everything else was just bonus.

.75 - Not hot? What, are you hetero? You are soooooo hetero. As for period movies, I'm trying to picture you in one of those wigs that are taller than you are.

I've been wanting to see this because I like period films, Kiera's ok, and I think Georgiana is an interesting lady. But NOW thanks to you I can convince my husband to take me. So thanks for this review!

When I was a senior in high school and was considering my offer from Smith College, our headmistress took me into her office, sat me down in a chair opposite her desk, and said, with great seriousness, "You know, they recruit."

I confess I was pretty disappointed that in four years there, nobody ever tried to "recruit" me.

Queen - If you want hot, you gotta watch L Word. I am SO bringing you Season 1!!!!!

TheQueen

Kim - Well, it wasn't hot enough for a lesbian. I thought it was hot, though.
TasterSpoon - Ha! Too funny - the old money president of Elliot went to Smith. I can't imagine anyone "recruiting" her. Especially since it isnt a choice. (See, .75? I have learned.)
.75 - Gary tried to watch that once. If it didnt keep a hetero mans interest, how sexy can it be?

Queen - I'm not worried about Gary, I was talking to you. There is some drama you have to sit through...that's probably what turned him off.

I'll be seeing Duchess this weekend. I read the book a few years ago. Georgiana is a very interesting character. If you find this era interesting, may I suggest a really good novel "Life Mask" by Emma Donoghue. Some of the same characters as the Duchess movie. Georgiana is only a minor character in the book, and it tends more toward her political side than her sex life (although that is also mentioned). Oh, and if it helps... "Life Mask" has closeted lesbians!

TheQueen

.75 - He probably fast-forwarded through the drama.
KC - I don't know if it helps! That movie certainly made me glad I didn't have children in that era, that's for sure.

Elody-May

Hey- I'm disappointed... I was suppose to be known as "elody may"... remember??? Anyway, I agree it was .75 whom started the whole 3way thing... though something tells me she'd be into that! Meanwhile, I'd agree that "the Scene" was cut very short... most likely to short, but then our grandmothers/mothers that would go to this movie may be embarassed and walk out. So i feel they effectively showed how women took care of eachother in so many ways and how it didn't matter who you are everyone has secrets. :)

TheQueen

Elody-May! Hi! Nice to see you. Yep, I'm sure they did what they had to do. But back then, they'd still have to put up with marriage. Have you gone to the Madonna concert yet? Was she heartbroken?

Elody-May

Madonna is so not going to be heartbroken... after all she's going to have all of us fans keeping her spirits up this weekend... So, in answer to your question this weekend is the weekend... please get this week over with!

Yes, but marriage is not what it is today... If women were smart they would have poisoned their men or put deadly insects in their pants if they were not worthy. I like the idea of i'm queen..... treat me like one! :) hehehhe if it were only that easy!

TheQueen

Elody-May (You have been given this name now) - But then if they poisoned the men where would the money come from? Their brothers in law would cast them out.
