Marie Antoinette (2006)
You can watch Marie Antoinette online on Amazon prime and on Netflix.
Director: Sofia Coppola
Writer: Sofia Coppola
Starring: Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, Jason Schwartzman as Louis XVI of France and Rip Torn as Louis XV of France.
Apart from the first few scenes of the movies where we see Maria Antonia in the Hofburg Palace in Austria, most scenes of this film are recorded at the real Palace of Versailles.
That is actually the small and secluded habitat where the life of Marie Antoinette took place until the start of the French Revolution.
The film does not dwell on the political and historical issues that led to that revolution. It merely depicts the reality of the life of this royal family, living in their golded cage.
It is a feel-good movie with beautiful dresses and outrageous hairdo's, showing a life of partying, gambling, eating and drinking. Meanwhile, you feel the pressure on this teenage Queen, who got married at age 15 to a 16-year-old boy and becomes queen at age 19. The pressure to produce an heir, to behave, to live up to the expectations of her mother (the empress of Austria) and her brother, and to that of all the other courtiers that are watching every step she takes.
