Her name is synonymous with the French monarchy and all its excesses, but there is more to the story of Marie Antoinette than the simplistic tale of how a frivolous sovereign helped provoke the uprising that became the French Revolution. This two-hour film paints a surprising portrait, tracing her journey from the splendors of a childhood in the mighty Austro-Hungarian Empire to her final hours in a French prison cell.
“Marie Antoinette succeeds brilliantly…historical storytelling at its best.”
