Trailer Blazer: Keira Knightley's 'The Duchess'

Posted on

Is it me (yes, I’m sure it is, but allow me to pose the question), or is Keira Knightley not all that?

                                       

I mean, is she really supposed to be the most fashionable woman on the planet? Is hers the face that could launch a thousand ships? (And is that Sideshow Bob-hair for real?) Your response to this trailer—touting a very plush-looking, if routine, period romance—hangs on how you’d answer these questions.

Me? Even though I kind of liked Atonement—and am a sucker for a good bodice, especially when ripped—wild horses couldn’t drag me to this. What about you?
