Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Written and directed by Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola (2003, Best Writing, Lost In Translation), Marie Antoinette is an electrifying yet intimate re-telling of the turbulent life of history's favorite villainess. Kirsten Dunst portrays the ill-fated child princess who married France's young and indifferent King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman). Feeling isolated in a royal court rife with scandal and intrigue, Marie Antoinette defied both royalty and commoner by living like a rock star, which served only to seal her fate.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With lyrical intelligence and scrappy wit, Coppola creates a luscious world to get lost in. It's a pleasure.
Rotten: Coppola's queen experiences no inner transformation or redemption because, in this telling, she's in no need of it. She's cool to begin with.
Rotten: Dunst plays Marie Antoinette as if she's seen the future and it's Paris Hilton.
Fresh: Every criticism I have read of this film would alter is fragile magic and reduce its romantic and tragic poignancy to the level of an instructional film.
"So, do you enjoy making keys?" "...Obviously" :D
I love this movie more than words can possibly express.
Beautiful, understated movie.
The acting in Marie Antoinette is subtle, and the scenery is gorgeous, and I'm so glad iTunes finally put this masterpiece up!
Let them eat cake
