Filming Photography: Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola, 2006)

Movies in costume are amazing. The dresses, the make up, the palaces, the stories that make us all dream. But I particularly love this one for its softness and its pop culture style, for the drama of two adolescents who were inadequate to be king and queen and their respective (and impossible) escapes, and of course for its gorgeous photography, directed by Lance Acord.

During the whole film, despite the great soundtrack and – of course – dialogues, silence prevails. It’s the photography that tells us the stories of life at court, of the life of a woman in search of her identity, with her virtues and vices, her desires and delusions.

In addition to the movie, who could not be enchanted by Annie Leibovitz photographs for Vogue Magazine?
