HERSTORY AT ITS BEST
If you ever sat dozing and daydreaming while a high school history teacher bored you to DEATH with endless and meaningless dates, you’re going to LOVE Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. History never had it so good! -maybe because it’s a historical story from a woman’s point of view, for a change. She presents real human figures we can IDENTIFY with – not just stiff one dimensional characters. Sofia focuses on the everyday life of these famous people – how they dressed, how they shopped, how they amused themselves, what amazing foods they ate, and how they GOSSIPED about each other. Did you realize gossip and hairdressers have been around for CENTURIES! And the scenery and set decoration is beyond lush. It’s a feast for the eyes. THANK YOU, Sofia, for making history fun!
