Marie Antoinette (2006)

Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette was born an Archduchess of Austria. at the age of 14 she married Louis XVI of France. she became the Queen of France at the age of 19. she was later blamed for not having produced an heir. pressure continues on all sides for her to become pregnant, but Louis XVI seems unwilling to do more than sleep beside her. she later had 3 children. 1 died n she was left with 2 - 1 girl, 1 boy - while they flee the country from angry mobs. the film was an eye-candy. the background was royal n ancient. the costumes n gowns were flowing n beautiful. it was slightly modern despite the plot being historical. the director - Sofia Coppola - mentioned: "it is not a lesson of history. it is an interpretation documented, but carried by my desire for covering the subject differently." she did a beautiful job in making history interesting.
