AT 15 SHE BECAME A BRIDE. AT 19 SHE BECAME A QUEEN. AT 20 SHE WAS A LEGEND.
Academy Award winning writer director SOFIA COPPOLA (LOST IN TRANSLATION, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES) puts a new spin on the life and times of France's iconic, but ill-fated Queen in MARIE ANTOINETTE. MARIE ANTOINETTE is a lavish historical drama fusing a contemporary sensibility with the look of the 18th century Europe, and was filmed with unprecedented access to the magnificent Palace of Versailles. The all-star cast includes KIRSTEN DUNST (the SPIDER-MAN franchise, ELIZABETHTOWN, WIMBLEDON), JASON SCHWARTZMAN (SHOPGIRL, RUSHMORE), STEVE COOGAN (A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM) and Australia's own ROSE BYRNE (TROY, WICKER PARK). With all the opulence, decadence and dazzling fashions of 18th century France, MARIE ANTOINETTE features the spectacular 2007 Oscar -winning costumes designed by the two-time Academy Award winning Milena Canonero (CHARIOTS OF FIRE, BARRY LYNDON). This modern day take on the original story of France's most infamous royal, MARIE ANTOINETTE is a must-see for fans of films like A KNIGHT'S TALE and ROMEO JULIET.
