Les adieux à la reine

Benoît Jacquot Frankrike, 2012

OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Farewell, My Queen

Quite an interesting look at beauty, loyalty and seduction at the beginning of the French revolution. Léa Seydoux, consistently good, puts in another solid performance as Marie Antoinette's reader in this well plotted and subtle period piece that relies more on the relationships than it does on setting to reveal it's story. 3.5 stars
