Film Review: Marie Antoinette

October 26, 2006

Marie Antoinette dissapoints, – rather significantly. We are generally big fans of Sofia Coppola’s work, but this little flick leaves one wondering – What was she thinking???? Whatever allegorical plot lines were the intent of the film, the plot and the undercurrents do not really hang together at all. The film is a rather loose collection of period costume and interiors scenes mixed in with a rather good performance by Kirsten Dunst as the unfortunate Austrian princess. The film, whose underlying theme was seemingly aimed at the modern “Girls Just Want to Have Fun – With No Awareness and No Responsibility” slogan, – by itself seems a reflection of that very same philosophy. It must have been great fun to pull the film together, but it does not work. A Loser! Not Recommended.
