Marie Antoinette-a movie review


Directed by Sofia Coppola
Starring Kirsten Dunst

Marie Antoinette was a very surprising movie. The costumes were absolutely beautiful and the food looks absolutely delicious.
The story was okay-a bit weird at the end. It's rated PG 13, though, for a reason-Marie decides to have an affair but there's no explicit scenes or nudity. I think a mature person could handle it. What I especially liked about this movie was how Coppola made the connection between the eighties and Versailles at this time through the eightie's rock music. Sociologists refer to the eighties as "the age of big" where there was more money in America than ever before and people had to have everything big-their cars, their hair, and yes, even their sleeves.
Versailles was experiencing a similar situation when Marie Antoinette was there. I wish I had more time to talk about the movie, but I don't. I'll try to post more MA pictures tonight.
Laters,
Sookie (ps. working right now on a story) :)

Looks interesting.

yeah, and once you watch it-you feel really sad because you know that she was truly innocent of bad will toward her people. All she knew her whole life was pleasure and praise.
