Part of the dramatic tension of watching this “other side of history” drama set in the midst of the French Revolution is in knowing that Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger) and most of the rest of the royal court of Versailles are soon going to lose their heads. But the focus of director Benoît Jacquot’s sinuous costume drama is Sidonie Laborde (Léa Seydoux), the dauphine’s reader of novels, through whose eyes we observe the stressful, ironic, behind-the-scenes goings-on. Filmmaker Jacquot (Sade, The School of Flesh) has always had a knack for directing actresses, and both Seydoux and Kruger luxuriate in the end-of-an-era-ness, with major input by Virginie Ledoyan as Gabrielle de Polignac, the court playgirl. One of Jacquot’s best. (99 min.)
