The Lady and the Duke

B+

THE LADY AND THE DUKE (129 mins., PG) Digital magic allows real actors to step in and out of painted historical backdrops in this articulate, engrossing political drama from the redoubtable Eric Rohmer. Lucy Russell brings spirited levelheadedness to the role of Grace Elliott, a real-life 18th-century Englishwoman in France whose fame for being the mistress of powerful men overshadowed the importance of her life as a resilient survivor and chronicler of the French Revolution.
