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.

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

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

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

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
