‘Let Them Eat CAKE!’: Misguided princess or haughty harlot? Marie Antoinette was The O.G. Rockstar

Today I purchased a copy of the 2006  “period-film” a la S. Coppolla, Marie Antoinette.

It is a guilty pleasure of mine.

The box reads:

Kirtsen Dunst portrays the ill-fated child princess who married France‘s young and indifferent Louis XVI. Feeling isolated in a royal court with scandal and intrigue, Marie Antoinette defied both royalty and commoner by living like a rock star, which served to seal her fate.

The film is a flashy hybrid, combining the romance of baroque France with decidedly contemporary flashes…however, this stylistic piece while scrutinized by film critiques is in fact an accurate depiction of the spirit of the Austrian princess’s life…if not historically valid…which I quite enjoy…Miss Coppolla challenges youths’ acceptance and integration of history in this manner…quite brilliant if you ask me!

I shall enjoy my great decadence tonight…and wish for the same small indulgences for you too!
