2006 | PG | 123 mins | 35 mm | US | D: Sofia Coppola

In Marie Antoinette, Sofia Coppola playfully reimagines the iconic and ill-fated French queen. Eschewing historical complexity, this film paints a portrait of a frivolous and ignorant young royal at the brink of revolution. A rock concert of period cinema, Marie Antoinette is replete with stunning locations, decadent costuming and a masterful contemporary soundtrack.

‘…gorgeous, giddy, gilded filmmaking’ – Empire

Available as a double feature with The Favourite (Yorgos Lanthimos, 2018), with the option to add a charcuterie board and beverage between screenings. Learn more.

Presented on 35mm film prints from the NFSA collection.
