Marie Antoinette


marieantoinetteBooed at the Cannes film festival premiere, hailed as a masterpiece by influential critics such as Roger Ebert, Sofia Coppolaā€™s film about Marie Antoinetteā€™s life as the free-spending wife of Franceā€™s King Louis XVIĀ tries to build a bridge to our time, playing out to a soundtrack with music by New Order, The Cure and others. The movie was shot at Versailles and considerable attention paid to the costumes and period details, but nothing much happens here and there seems to be no deeper meaning. The emperor is naked? Yes, but still worth a look.
