One of the most aestetically pleasing movies of all time has to be Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. Despite the beatings it received from critics, the film does exactly what it’s supposed to do, offer a look at the French queen in an updated way with cool post punk beats.
How can a film laced with Ladurée confections and custom made Manolo Blahniks not be just the most beautiful freaking thing that you have ever seen!? From the piled high pink pastel and sometimes boat bearing wigs to the silk embroidered garments, grown-up dress up players would lust over, this film has some serious eye candy.
I remember watching this by myself when I was home sick from school. It’s a good movie to watch alone for the first time so haters don’t taint it for you (Twilight should be watched alone too). It was a movie I could see a lot of people hating, the acting is a bit dodgy really, but I didn’t care. I knew it would be my spring go-to movie. It was lovely and smart and picturesque. It made me want to be rich, royal, and young in the 1700s complete with garden parties, and hide and go seek at Versailles.
