Dangerous Beauty

Just a quick post.  I watched one of my old favorite movies tonight (Dangerous Beauty), and it still brings me to tears in the end.  The look of conviction and serenity on her face as she refuses to lie to save her self while telling the truth of her life as a courtesan.  It just touches me somehow and I cry everytime.  I don’t know how much of this movie is based on the REAL story of Veronica Franco, but I find nearly every word of it just beautiful.  She is a strong woman in a historic setting.  She makes her choices and she does not apologize for who she is.  Something I hope to be more of all of the time.  I could only find one youtube clip of her confessing at the Inquisition, but I’m going to include it because it is the part of the movie where I start losing it!

Highly recommend this movie (nudity and language warning- not in the clip but in the movie- but I think it’s worth it).
