Now I love me some Kirsten Dunst but 2006′s Marie Antoinette simply did not do it for me. Which is why I was excited to hear about a new (and very different) Marie Antoinette movie via The Boston French Film Festival. Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, Joshua Jackson‘s woman!) plays the Queen B in this tale of royalty, love, and– believe it or not– homoerotic affairs dans Versailles. Watch exclusive clips and the trailer inside!
Diane Kruger in Farewell My Queen
As I said in my post on the French Film Festival, I cannot imagine life without French cinema, and I cannot wait to watch this film! In the trailer, you can see that a completely different approach is being taken to this story, which is important considering that Marie Antoinette is a bit of a pop culture icon herself. The plot is so unique, I can only expect good things.
Any Diane Kruger fans in the building? And who’s up for some crazy, sexy French subtitles?!
Farewell My Queen opens in select theaters July 13.
