Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette ★★★★

All Films Watched in 2020, Ranked / S. Coppola, Ranked


visually decadent. such a clever flare of modernity layered over affectations that humanize this period piece. Dunst is great, and despite her Marie Antoinette being a vain, ostentatious royal, Coppola is able to elicit sympathy for the titular character. she's met with misfortune as a product of her juvenile tendencies, but she's in that position as a result of an awful, ritualistic system that thrusts the unprepared forward and provides little support for anyone looking to do better.
