Film: Marie Antoinette
In English with French subtitles
Join us for a special screening of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, an evocative retelling of France’s iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. The film follows her story from her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15, to her rise as queen at 19, to the end of her reign and ultimately the fall of Versailles.
