Have you seen Sofia Coppola's film Marie Antoinette?
Some people loved it and some hated it. I'm firmly in the loved it
camp. I found it to be a refreshing interpretation of a historical
figure, unlike I'd seen before in film. I loved the look and sound (what
a soundtrack!) of it. It's youthful energy is perfectly suited to the
subject, who, afterall, was a mere fourteen years old when she first
moved into the palace of Versailles. As told through the eyes of that
young girl who becomes queen, it's a brilliant personal "history of
feelings" as opposed to a "history of facts" as Kirsten Dunst put it. I
couldn't help but think of that movie as I strolled through the rooms of
Versailles last May.
