This gauzy interpretation of the French icon as the life of a decadent paparazzi princess is Versailles via Vogue, a frivolous New Romantic confection in which history is less important than emotional veracity.

With her third film, Sophia Coppola exhibits an annoying preference for style over substance.

This could be the story of Paris Hilton if she were to be married off to an impotent French Prince instead of dating meatheads armed with camcorders.

Coppola successfully has made a period film that doesn't feel like a museum piece.

The very antithesis of the traditional historical film, approaching its material as an accepted present.

Sofia Coppola has sacrificed a compelling storyline in exchange for aimless atmospherics.

For two hours, we are treated to a display of prettiness. It's like one big elaborate meringue, delicate and intricately decorated, but without much past the surface.

As a serious film, only an American could love Marie Antoinette. To the French, it must be gravely insulting. As an unwitting camp, it may have a great future.

Sofia Coppola arroja una mirada fresca y contemporánea (incluso desde la banda sonora) sobre la figura de María Antonieta; quienes busquen rigor histórico, o se incomoden con las libertades que suelen tomarse los artistas, deberían abstenerse.

Coppola's disconnected her character from history to achieve this glittering surface and there's nothing else to which a viewer can hang on.
