Let them eat cake!  Okay, she never said that but see what her life was sort of like in a big screen look at the life of Marie Antoinette (as directed by Sophia Coppola).  Then, December kicks off as Harrison Ford goes on the run in the big screen adaptation of “The Fugitive.”

“Marie Antoinette” (2006)

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30 @ 7:30 p.m.

Marie Antoinette (Columbia, 2006)

The life of the last Queen of France is told–with a very modern interpretation.  Rock music combines with period appropriate classical music and the characters take on a bit of 21st century attitude to go with their 18th century settings, costumes and story.  Kirsten Dunst plays Marie and the film was directed by Sofia Coppola.  The film received both boo’s and a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival when it was first debuted, showing Coppola did something right. Color, 123 minutes.
