Marie Antoinette is a modern historical account wrapped in a cotton candy fever dream. Marie (Kirsten Dunst) is 14-years-old when she’s thrust into the hapless role of Queen to Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman). In the pressure to create an heir, she becomes submerged in an insulated world of protocol, extravagance and luminous beauty that’s as imprisoning as it is lavish. Radiating a self-aware modernity, and a post-punk sensibility, featuring an awesome soundtrack that includes Gang of Four, Adam & the Ants, Siouxsie & the Banshees, and The Strokes, filmmaker Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Beguiled) paints Marie’s life in Versailles as a timeless story of a lonely girl with impeccable style and a sprightly spirit, trapped in a suffocating world of luxury and unrealized existential pain.
