"Kristen Dunst is pitch-perfect in the title role."

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"A buoyant, passionately sympathetic dream-bio."

— Stephanie Zacharek,

"A startlingly original and beautiful pop reverie that comes very close to being transcendent."

— Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times

"The prettiest movie of the year so far, Marie Antoinette is also one of the most thrillingly original. [2006]"

— Eleanor Ringel Cater, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"With lyrical intelligence and scrappy wit, Coppola creates a luscious world to get lost in. It's a pleasure."

— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"Coppola brilliantly conjures the young queen's insular world, in which she was both isolated and claustrophobically scrutinized."

— Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"Instead of turning her inside out, Coppola illustrates just how ordinary she was and how her insular world prevented her from understanding the events that eventually would end her life."

— Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

"It's a highly personal film, which takes us into the very limited universe of a very young woman forced to play a very public role, gorgeously laying forth the trappings of luxury,... until we,... realize that it's nothing more than a gilded cage."

— Anne Cohen, Refinery29
