Farewell, My Queen

Personally, I'll take as many movies about Marie Antoinette as they want to make. I'm one of the only people I know to not only enjoy, but own the Sofia Coppola film. (What can I say? My twin, in those dresses. My imagination doesn't have to work very hard.)

This latest telling, Farewell, My Queen, told actually in French, opened the Berlin Film Festival and has a lesbian twist on the whole Storming the Bastille timeframe. To which I say, why not. Diane Kruger doesn't remotely look like she's in her forties, but that' okay. Also, it's been a while since I've seen Virginie Ledoyen in anything, so bring on the Versailles grandeur. I wouldn't mind a trip back to that place. 

Anyhow, flick is out in the US in about two weeks. 


  1. Oh boy! I didn't know they were going to make a movie out of the book! I read it when I was living in France. Lucky me, I lived about 10 min. away from Versailles. I LOVE that place, and I too own the Sofia Coppola movie :)

  2. Love this film) You have a good taste! But please change this terrible font of comments.


Why Stop Now?
