Marie Antoinette

The film Marie Antoinette is a visual treat. Between the clothes, the food and the scenery, we are barraged with beautiful scenes frame after frame. This makes up for all the areas of not much. Plot? not much. Dialogue? not much. Sofia Coppola is masterful at conveying mood and emotion through visual images. In this period of French history, she helps us feel the boredom and frustration of the young, royal, idol rich. Kirsten Dunst is effervescent in her portrayal of the young queen. An interesting view of this part of French history.
