Film Journal International

There's no denying that Coppola has style to spare and has truly blown the dust off one's traditional biopic expectations.

Fails to live up to the promise of its premise.

Films like 'Marie Antoinette' foster serious discussion about cinema for all the wrong reasons. Just what the hell is this supposed to be?

Stunningly original...The masterstroke of Marie Antoinette is how Coppola connects the social order to sexual servitude.

Q Network Film Desk

Coppola's lavishly mounted film paints an extremely sympathetic portrait of Marie as a misunderstood free spirit trapped in the confines of rigid French royalty

The Nation

Coppola's tone is more like that of Manoel de Oliveira's deadpan renditions of nineteenth-century novels, but lighter and sweeter, as befits a queen who was fond of meringue.

Pretty as a picture... and as empty as a French peasant's portefeuille.

A cotton candy account that plays loosely with the truth in trying to be hip, contemporary and pink.

Pretty on the outside, empty on the in.

...like a girlified version of a Ken Russell period piece...Coppola mixes historical fact with Coppola's own perspective on what this young woman had to contend with.

Films, like royalty, it turns out, cannot survive on style alone.

Marie Antoinette may be Coppola's weakest movie, but it is far from a failure.

Susan Tavernetti
Palo Alto Weekly

Coppola's third feature is all surface and no substance, leaving you as undernourished as the French in the bread-shortage months preceding the revolution.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

What Coppola delivers is a fresh take on history that makes it come to life in an unexpected way.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

"Marie" is a flawed but admirable attempt to give us the view from inside the gilded cage, one that generally works until the peasants get restless in the third act.

Where Marie Antoinette fares best is in its examination of the royal life as a treadmill of constantly winding boredom.

It's very pretty and occasionally amusing but also dreadfully dull for long, long stretches.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

There are several wonderful moments and one magnificent scene (the masked ball), but there's nothing new here and certainly nothing daring.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

By colliding eras, Coppola asserts that rich youth of long ago aren't much different than those alive today.

Most should be moved by the emotional and psychological insights into what it is like to be Marie Antoinette.
