In Venice in the late 1500s, courtesans were afforded a very special status among women: As mistresses to Venice's most important and wealthy men, they lived a regal lifestyle, and were even encouraged to read and study at a time when such education was forbidden for most woman. Catherine McCormick ("Spy Game," "Shadow of the Vampire") stars as Veronica Franco, a courtesan and poet, who became something of a superstar in her time. Also starring Rufus Sewell ("A Knight's Tale," "Dark City") as the one man she truly loved; Jacqueline Bisset ("The Deep," "Murder on the Orient Express") as her mother, a former courtesan; Moira Kelly (TV's "The West Wing," "The Lion King"); Oliver Platt ("Ready to Rumble," "Three to Tango"); Jeroen Krabbe ("An Ideal Husband," "The Fugitive"); and Joanna Cassidy ("Ghosts of Mars," TV's "Six Feet Under").
The design of this movie is phenomenal! They wear the most beautiful costumes, even when they are dressed in rags. This movie is a visual feast for the costume oriented (such as myself). The story is courageous and romantic, and at the same time exiting. This is by far one of my favorite movies.

This movie is awesome. It hardly ever leaves my computer! Great wit and charm. This is one of my favorite movies ever. Buy it.
I have seen this movie over ten times. The acting, costumes, feelings come thru the screen enough to move you.
In fact, I looked specifically for this movie. It is the only one I have downloaded. Because I didn't want to fill my iPad w random movies!
