Dangerous Beauty (film)

Just rewatched this movie and wanna highly, highly recommend it!! I loved it the first time of course but love it even more this 2nd time!! It’s a historical film about Veronica Franco, a Venetian courtesan in the 16th century. Based on the non-fiction book called Honest Courtesan, which I think would’ve been a way better movie title than Dangerous Beauty! It is a beautiful story about love that is extraordinarily written and magnificently shot. And unlike many historical tales, it doesn’t end in tragedy! In fact she lived a long life (relatively speaking) and helped many in her later years! :)
