Marie Antoinette is an Academy Award-nominated 2006 film written and directed by Sofia Coppola (her father did The Godfather) about the life of Marie Antoinette. It was Coppola’s first film since winning an Academy Award for the screenplay of 2003’s Lost In Translation. The film is loosely based on the historical biography Marie Antoinette: The Journey by Lady Antonia Fraser, and ends with the fall of Versailles.
This movie is nothing like what you’d expect. The music is modern. It’s all in English and nobody speaks with an accent. It is very entertaining and will change your perception about Marie Antoinette and that whole bit of history.
Even though it looks like a chick flic, it doesn’t really fit into that category, nor drama, nor comedy. It is interesting and entertaining and very well made.
If you liked Lost in Translation, or if you like Kirsten Dunst, then see this movie. Highly recommended.
