On page 244 of the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Marie Antoinette director Sofia Coppola is quoted by Lady Antonia Fraser, author of Marie-Antoinette: The Journey, as having asked early on, “So would it matter if I leave out the politics?” And Fraser, whose biography Coppola based her film upon, replies, “Marie Antoinette would have adored that.” Exactly. Precisely.
