The retelling of France's iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen, and ultimately the fall of Versailles.
As the extremely withdrawn Don Johnston is dumped by his latest woman, he receives an anonymous letter from a former lover informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him. A freelance sleuth neighbor moves Don to embark on a cross-country search for his old flames in search of answers.
Hollywood actor Johnny Marco, nested in his luxury hotel of choice, is a stimulated man. Drinking, parties and women keep a creeping boredom under wraps in between jobs. He is the occasional father of a bright girl, Cleo, who may be spoiled but doesn't act it. When Cleo's mother drops her off and leaves town, Johnny brings her along for the ride, but can he fit an 11-year-old girl into his privileged lifestyle?Written by

The film's 'Golden Lion' win at the Venice International Film Festival was highly controversial, with some people questioning President of the Jury Quentin Tarantino's objectivity due to Sofia Coppola being a former girlfriend of his. See more »

Have you seen a film where NOTHING happens but you wait nevertheless, hoping that there will be something meaningful any moment now? Well, this is one of them. What's the point of mentioning some fairly good acting and a decent soundtrack....it's all for nothing... What a shame, to realise that an hour and a half of your life has just been stolen. Now, a review needs to be at least ten lines long....haa-haa, a film needs to be of certain length too, doesn't it, Sophia? I could just fluff it all up a little, but that would be akin to plagiarising Ms Coppola's work. Instead, I shall repeat what I said earlier: Have you seen a film where NOTHING happens but you wait nevertheless, hoping that there will be something meaningful any moment now? Well, this is one of them. What's the point of mentioning some fairly good acting and a decent soundtrack....it's all for nothing...
