While you shouldn't head into Marie Antoinette looking for a history lesson, you can look forward to a movie that will dazzle your senses. Kidzworld reviews the controversial flick starring Kirsten Dunst, right here!

Marie Antoinette - Teen Queen

Sophia Coppola's flick Marie Antoinette is, above anything else, one of the prettiest movies you'll have seen in a long time. The movie tells the tale of the former Queen of France and begins on the day she finds out she'll be setting out from her native land of Austria to marry the Dauphin of France - at the young age of 14. She endures the long journey to this new land, says goodbye to everything and everyone from home and within hours of arriving in France is married to her new husband. From there, the story follows Marie on her epic journey as one of the richest (and most spoiled) women in history.

Marie Antoinette - I Want Candy

Unlike other films and portrayals of the former queen, Marie Antoinette takes a sympathetic look at the life of this royal. Starring Kirsten Dunst and accompanied by '80s pop tunes, it would be easy to forget that you're watching the story of a long-dead historic figure if it weren't for the authentic settings and costumes. Filmed entirely in Marie Antoinette's (and King Louis XVI's) former home in Versailles, the visuals in the movie are stunning. Every dress, every shoe and every diamond necklace will pull you in and keep you wanting more.

Marie Antoinette - Let Them Eat Cake

One of the biggest things that this movie is getting flack for is its lack of historic content and seriousness. But while some may think that this is a downfall, others think it works. Marie Antoinette takes a modern, fresh look at a story that you've heard time and time again. The flick also takes a big risk by disputing historic claims that Marie Antoinette ever said the famous words, "Let them eat cake!" when she found out that the people of France were starving and had no bread. Regardless of what the truth is, this latest biopic is a lot of fun. It focuses on the queen as a young, silly, frivolous girl thrown into the spotlight and it succeeds in capturing your attention from start to finish.

Marie Antoinette – DVD Features

Enter a world of extravagance as you take a peek behind-the-scenes of Marie Antoinette’s production. Find out exactly how Sophia Coppola created this decadent looking movie – from the gorgeous dresses and shoes to the mounds of delicious food! The DVD also includes deleted scenes and an up close look at the infamous Palace of Versailles where the real Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI lived for many years.

Marie Antoinette - Bottom Line

Marie Antoinette is a beautiful movie that has something for everyone - but a little more for girls who have a weakness for pretty things. You won't walk away from it with a brain full of facts about the French Revolution, but you will take away good vibes. Against all odds, this is a feel-good movie that is a must-see.
