GREENLIGHT #84: Marie Antoinette (with "Mary Queen of Scots" and "The Three Musketeers")

Ann and Les were eyeing the neck of Marie Antoinette (2006) minutes into the film. Unfortunately, her head didn't roll soon enough. In fact, one of their big complaints about the film is that only those familiar with European history would even know what happened to her and her head. Their other big complaint focuses on the ghastly performance of Kirsten Dunst who played the title role like a Valley Girl in Versailles. While they continue to be hopeful for the career of director Sofia Coppolla, who can certainly shoot pretty pictures, they don't recommend her story telling skills in this one. The costumes, however, were fantastic. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends a great film about two dynamic queens, on screen and off, called Mary Queen of Scots (1971.) It features Vanessa Redgrave in the title role battling wits with her rival Elizabeth I played by Glenda Jackson. Very dramatic stuff. Ann goes a much lighter route with a host of great actors, Oliver Reed, Raquel Welch , Michael York , Geraldine Chaplin , and Charlton Heston , among many others, romping around in Richard Lester's costume drama (and comedy) The Three Musketeers (1973.)
