‘Marie Antoinette: The Last Queen of France’ is a documentary filmed in in France and Austria, with rare access to Versailles, telling an unprecedented intensely human story of the often misunderstood monarch who was beheaded during the turbulence and horror of the French revolution.

Marie Antoinette, the young and beautiful Austrian princess who was strategically married into the most prestigious monarchy in Europe, was to become the symbol for the wanton extravagance of the 18th century aristocracy and was to be France’s last queen.

The film beautifully depicts her as a fragile young woman who went through a lot of struggle during the course of her life.
