Although I never warmed up to Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, I absolutely loved the vibrant costumes and having a chance to visit 18th century France.Here are some images from the film. [Source]
A beautiful, visually stunning film...that just wasn't quite good. SUCH a pity.
I read on The Costumer's Guide to Movie Costumes (http://www.costumersguide.com/cr_ma.shtml) that Kirsten Dunst had more than 60 costume changes in this movie---more than 60 costumes in a two-hour movie means she only wore each one for an average of 2 minutes of screen time! While that's too bad for getting to see the details of the costumes, I thought the movie was a little long, myself.
Imagine having that kind of wardrobe! I'd never be able to decide what to wear. Beautiful costumes, though. I wouldn't mind having one of those dresses at my disposal.
SO LOVELY!!! ❤❤❤
Hi Cheryl,I agree totally, great eye candy but KD not the right actress. I felt similarly about Down with Love with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. Great 60s costumes but it just didn't work as a film.Keep up the great posts. I love your blog. Can't wait for Downton Abbey to start on PBS so I can watch it in HD instead of teeny youtube screen!
Kaye, I didn't read about the number of costume changes although I have visited that site!Jenny,Thanks! Down with Love was a DVD that I bought assuming that I would love it but I agree, it missed the mark! Luckily Zellweger & Macgregor's re-pairing for Miss Potter was delightful!Downton Abbey should look sumptious in HD!
very vivid images in the movie :) I liked it overall :)
I HAVE RETIRED FROM THE BLOG AND WILL NO LONGER BE DOING UPDATES. THANKS!
