Becky and I went to see Marie Antoinette at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO last week. The Fandango website at Marie Antoinette describes the movie as follows:
“When betrothed to King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman), the naïve Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst) enters the opulent French court which is steeped in conspiracy and scandal. Without guidance, adrift in a dangerous world, the young girl rebels against the isolated atmosphere at Versailles and becomes France’s most misunderstood monarch.”
Marie Antoinette was one of the worst movies of the year. This movie was so boring that we almost left numerous times. There wasn’t really a point to this film other than to apparently make a period film with big foo foo dresses about a famous woman played by Kirsten Dunst.
If you go to watch this movie you will see the strange story about Marie Antoinette, which the audience had no idea is actually true or not. According to this version of her life, she didn’t consumate her marriage bed for years and that was hardly interesting, but took up a great deal of the flick.
Because her husband the king was such a dork, she had an affair with some American war hero and then she indulged in continual excessive parties, pastries and chocolates while the country fell apart. It was like watching a reality show about a modern day Hollywood movie star dressed in outdated apparel. I kid you not, this was the entire movie.
There is absolutely no substance to this film and it won’t even make a good rental. Our advice is to skip it all together.
