FAREWELL, MY QUEEN (LES ADIEUX À LA REINE)
Benoit Jacquot, 2012, France, 97 min.
A brilliant snapshot of the final days of Marie Antoinette, starring a terrific Diane Kruger as the ill-fated Queen and rising star Léa Seydoux (MIDNIGHT IN PARIS) as her quietly ambitious lady-in-waiting. This was the Opening Night Film, 2012 Berlin Film Festival.
