The teaser follows the scandalous true story surrounding the divorce of the Duke (Paul Bettany) and Duchess of Argyll (Claire Foy), described as “one of the most notorious, extraordinary, and brutal legal cases of the 20th century.”
A synopsis continues, “Famed for her charisma, beauty, and style, Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, dominated the front pages as a divorce featuring accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, secret recording, bribery, and an explicit Polaroid picture all played out in the white-hot glare of the 1960s media.
“‘A Very British Scandal’ turns this scandal inside out in order to explore the social and political climate of postwar Britain, looking at attitudes towards women, and asking whether institutional misogyny was widespread at the time.”
“As her contemporaries, the press, and the judiciary sought to vilify her, Margaret kept her head held high with bravery and resilience, refusing to go quietly as she was betrayed by her friends and publicly shamed by a society that revelled in her fall from grace.”
