Due to the holidays, LKMTAWYT took a little break but we’re back! I hope you like this week’s selection.
Why I love this movie:
Who doesn’t love a well done costume drama? The sets and costumes are beautiful and showcase Venice in its prime. It’s also based on a true story. Well loosely based on the real Veronica Franco and I do love stories that are based on real events. I know I’m not giving this movie the justice it deserves but trust me this is a very good movie.
What it’s about:
A woman in 16th century Venice with little options in life decides to be a courtesan. Loosely based on the life of poetess Veronica Franco. Who became the most celebrated courtesan of her time. She was hailed as a hero then demonized for bewitching the men of Venice.
My personal rating: B+
