Marie Antoinette is directed and written by Sofia Coppola, and it stars Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman in a historical drama about the events that happen throughout Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst). Thanks to A Very Murray Christmas, I got myself right back on topic for watching Sofia Coppola's filmography and managed to rent all the rest of her films that I haven't reviewed except for The Beguiled, which I'll watch that at another time when I finish her other films. So for her third film, Marie Antoinette is a really good film that's just as good as her first one, although not quite as good as Lost in Translation. The acting is very solid, Kirsten Dunst did a great job of being subtle actions that tells us about what her character is like without even telling us about her character by just saying it. The rest of the cast is also pretty good, and there's no weak link here. The costume design is fantastic as it definitely convinces the audience that that was during the 1700s, and it definitely deserved the Academy Award for that. The writing by Sofia Coppola is well done that shows the loneliness of Kirsten Dunst's character, and that everybody keeps telling her what to do to which she has no choice but to do that. The soundtrack, for the most part, is really good, but then when it plays a pop song, it took me a bit out of it because I wasn't really expecting some songs like this in a British period film, and I felt like it didn't necessarily fit with the film's tone. I get that the pop songs represents the teenage life from Sofia Coppola's perspective of Marie Antoinette, but it was a little distracting for me. While I thought the plot was fine as it is, the pacing can be a bit tough to sit through. I feel like this pacing is slower than Lost in Translation because the characters in this at times don't really do much in here other then go to a mash party, do politics, and not talk that much to each other, which can be a bit of a drag to watch. I was still interested in what's going on, but only in a mild sense, and the replay value for me is low. So while this is a different route for Sofia Coppola to take, which I'll give her praise for that at least, Marie Antoinette is not one of her bests, and it's one of my least liked films from her, but I still like what I got out of it, just not going to re-watch this a lot in the future.
