From the imagination of Oscar winning director and writer Sofia Coppola (LOST IN TRANSLATION) comes a vibrant retelling of the classic story of Marie Antoinette. Starring Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, the naive teenage Austrian princess, betrothed to King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman).
Overwhelmed and distraught, Marie Antoinette seeks refuge in the decadence and hedonism of the French aristocracy and in a secret love affair. Whether she is being idealised for her impeccable style or vilified for being unforgivably out of touch with her subjects, reaction to Marie Antoinette has always as extreme as the iconic queen herself.
