What a film.
Anyone else seen it?
I loved the use of 1980s New Wave music to help the audience connect better with the age and situation of the character.
And of course, the cakes.
I picked up the Antonia Fraser book which inspired the movie, and I really wish the film had taken you to the end of her life, right up to her imprisonment and beheading. In the end I guess the right decision was made, because it does leave you wanting more, which is what all films should do, and it ends on a very atmospheric note.
I love Sofia Coppola's work. Marie Antoinette has replaced my previous favourite film, The Virgin Suicides - also a Kirsten Dunst/Coppola work.
