Kirsten Dunst did a stupendous job, portraying Marie Antoinette as a naive sweet soul, generous to a fault, and completely unaware of politico, which ultimately caused her downfall.

The costumes, the set, the art direction were all very close to actual historical detail. I love how Coppola kept this fierce vigil over historical accuracy of the costumes, furniture and set; and yet gave the movie a tone of rock 'n roll edge. It helped bring to light that the young royals were really just a bunch of teenagers.
