Synopsis

Marie-Antoinette has gone down in history as symbolising the way that royalty can be out-of-touch with and cruelly indifferent to the suffering of ordinary people. While the people of France starved, she was said to have announced: "Let them eat cake." But has history treated this not-quite fairytale princess unfairly? This achingly cool movie uses a contemporary rock soundtrack to help portray her not as an unfeeling monster - but simply a bored and restless teenage girl, who didn't understand the nature of the world-changing events that were going on around her.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
