period: The Scandalous Lady W

The Scandalous Lady W

Lady Seymour Worsley (Natalie Dormer ) dares to leave her abusive husband and elope with his best friend, only to find herself at the centre of a very public trial brought by her powerful husband.

The real Lady Worsley effectively won the court case but was eventually abandoned by her lover after her husband refused a divorce; she became a courtesan and subsequently fled to Paris to avoid her debts, only to become trapped there during the French Revolution.
