I watched this film a few nights ago.
It is on SBS Catch Up TV - for free - until the end of February next year, 2016, if you are in Australia.
It was filmed at Versailles and is both sumptuously beautiful and totally engrossing.
It covers three days as word reaches the court of trouble stirring in Paris, and is told from the viewpoint of a young woman who works as Marie-Antoinette's reader.
Most of the cast are female, and all give wonderful performances.
It truly gives a sense of the confusion, and incomplete understanding of what was happening as the Revolution was about to begin, by those about to be engulfed by it.
I fell in love with Diane Kruger as the doomed queen.
I'll be watching it again. I thoroughly recommend it.
