I have to say, I wasn’t too impressed with The Virgin Suicides, but I really enjoyed Lost in Translation. So I’m willing to give Sophia Coppolla the benefit of the doubt when it comes to her new movie, Marie Antoinette, a biopic about the life of… well, Marie Antoinette. Right now, it looks like Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon set to some 80s New Wave music.
And even if the trailer didn’t attract me (and it does), the cast is eclectic enough to pique my interest, with Jason Schwartzman, Rip Torn, Steve Coogan, Marianne Faithful and Kirsten Dunst all running around in period costumes. I’m looking forward to it.
Crikey, this isn’t due for release her until next December. Is the trailer any good?
Also, I spotted on Planet of the Blogs that you had a review of Mad Hot Ballroom which I wanted to read, only to discover it had disappeared. Is it lurking somewhere or gone altogether?
Ooops – my bad!
