Marie Antoinette (2006)

This film was criticized as playing fast and loose with history and being vacuous to boot. It tells the story of arguably the most famous and infamous queen in history, French queen Marie Antoinette, whose husband was at the helm of a France dissolving into revolution. Sofia Coppola has crafted a believable story around the teenager thrust into the pomp of overblown French society. And too little positive attention has been given to the attention paid to all the costumes, sets and style of the film. That's what sticks out most - and Coppola should not be criticized for "glossing over" the historical details. This is a film about Marie Antoinette, not Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. It's soundtracked to surprising effect with new wave - yet another thing Coppola's been criticised for - but it adds interest and allows for Marie Antoinette's story to have some modern relevance. It's a candy-coloured fantastic film full of visual delights and Kirsten Dunst does a stellar job in the lead role.

The film is based on the Orphean myth and on Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. It tells the story of a young, English poet Christian who falls in love with the star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine. Both characters break out into love songs of all my favorite hits.

For much of her adult life, Coco Chanel carefully guarded the truth about her humble beginnings in the care of the nuns of the Aubazine convent in France. But, in my mind at least, she is all the more fascinating and triumphant for having literally sewn the seeds of her own later success. And I cannot wait to meet this young Coco, as played by the new face of Chanel No. 5: Audrey Tatou.
