A Destiny of Her Own

A Destiny of Her Own Denied the hand of Marco Venier (Sewell) because of her lower station in life, Veronica Franco (McCormack) instead courageously cultivates a powerful image based on intelligence, glamour and sex, reaching the highest echelons of power -- as a courtesan.

Driven to rise above the rigid social constraints, she keeps her passion for Marco alive. Her highly cultivated mind and exquisite charm makes her simultaneously respected and feared -- which ultimately puts her soul on trial. In A Destiny of Her Own , Veronica Franco's true-life story is an incredible revelation of her impact not only on the men in her life -- but the world around her.
