Another film that is fascinating and intriguing when it both come to clothes and plot is Dangerous Beauty, loosely based on the life of Venetian courtesan and poetess Veronica Franco. The main character is portrayed by Catherine MacCormack and other noted actors are Rufus Sewell and Jacqueline Bisset. The film naturally gives a very romanticized picture of 16th Venice, the life of a courtesan and the state of love but sometimes you need to look on life through rosy coloured lenses.
We get to see the all over powering love between Veronica and the man who can't marry beneath his station. A love beyond reason. So seductive and so life threatening but the best kind of love if you ask me.
