A charming confection with a sugary outer shell and not much for filling. Clever approach, that, as its subject is made a prisoner of Versailles and the ponderous routines and poisonous gossip of Court culture. The empty film mirrors Antoinette's empty life.
I like the way the film looks and feels, but had the same reaction to its predecessor Lost in Translation--worth seeing, but I don't need ever to see it again.
