  • Other films about Marie Antoinette have had their moments, but Benoît Jacquot's Farewell, My Queen is the first to give a real sense of what it must have felt like to live inside that palace as the walls were caving in. show more

  • The story refuses to combust; it's a strangely unsatisfying combination of bloodless observations and unresolved sexuality. show more

  • Seydoux, no doubt best known for her kickboxing catfight with Paula Patton in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," gives a quiet, watchful performance, suggesting fealty for her lady but also a strong independent streak. show more

Filmmakers these days are getting a little, uh, imaginative when it comes to depicting historical figures on the big screen. Need I say more than Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to illustrate my point...
