This true story of a 16th-century courtesan's life and loves is not the romance novel plot you might expect. Catherine McCormick (Braveheart) plays Veronica Franco, a poet who becomes a prostitute to gain admittance to the male worlds of education and politics. McCormick is stunning and director Marshall Herskovitz renders the world of 16th-century Venice with dazzling beauty.
