Farewell, My Queen

Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas, Lea Seydoux stars as one of Marie Antoinette's (Diane Kruger) ladies-in-waiting, seemingly an innocent but quietly working her way into her mistress's special favours, until history tosses her fate onto a decidedly different path. With the action moving effortlessly from the gilded drawing rooms of the nobles to the back quarters of those who serve them, this is a period film at once accurate and sumptuous in its visual details and modern in its emotions. Director Benoit Jacquot brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution. With Virginie Ledoyen, Xavier Beauvois, and Noemie Lvovsky.
