Sofia Coppola‘s Marie-Antoinette “may also be [her] most personal film to date, not because she is herself the scion of a royal Hollywood family, but rather because she came of age during her father’s lean years, when the palace of Zoetrope was set upon by angry creditors and King Francis was forced into working as a director-for-hire just to pay the bills. This is a movie made by someone who knows firsthand what it means to watch a once-glorious empire crumble .” — L.A. Weekly critic Scott Foundas in his sum-up piece on the Cannes Film Festival.
