New Marie Antoinette Film

To know me is to know I'm borderline-obsessed with Marie Antoinette.  So when I heard that a new Marie Antoinette movie was being made, I got a little giddy.  First, Eva Green was rumored to play the infamous queen.  Then, it was verified that Diane Kruger would be taking the role.  I was a little wishy-washy at first about the thought of her in the part. But, with the release of these film stills... I'm starting to totally see it...


Above: Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger) shares an embrace with her friend the Duchesse de Polignac (Virginie Ledoyen). 



The new film, titled "Farewell, My Queen" is Chantal Thomas' novel.  It centers around Sidonie Laborde (played by Lea Seydoux), a reader to the queen.



I'm swooning over the costumes and set...



Gorgeous, no?
Thanks to Lumiere for these stills!  And to Tea at Trianon for pointing me toward the post on Playlist.


Psssst! Love Marie Antoinette decor as much as I do?  Check out one of my early decor boards, inspired by none other than Marie Antoinette herself!

Shelby, I totally forgot that was Diane in National Treasure. I loved her in that, too!

Diane Kruger was amazing as Helen of Troy- I'm sure she'll do an equally fabulous job as Marie Antoinette! Can't wait:)

I can't wait to see this one :) I'm fascinated with Marie Antoinette as well! I'm still getting used to Diane Kruger as Marie, but I'm sure she'll do a great job. And I love the costumes in the pictures you posted. They're so beautiful!
