Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola, 2006)
Written and directed by Sophia Coppola, this daring, highly-stylized period film looks at the life of the French queen (Kirsten Dunst) in the years leading up to the French Revolution. Coppola was given unprecedented access to the Palace of Versailles for the filming and chose New Wave and Post-Punk music for the soundtrack. “This is Sophia Coppola’s third film centering on the loneliness of being female and surrounded by a world that knows how to use you but not how to value and understand you.” – Roger Ebert
