In June of 1791, a group of passengers in a stagecoach find themselves caught up in the events of the French Revolution, when they find themselves in the city of Varennes when revolutionists arrest the fleeing King Louis. Written by
A wonderful, literate film for adults which plays with history, and the idea of power and its trappings. It imagines what would happen if contemporary celebrities at the time of The French Revolution found themselves together in a coach following the fugitive king. In fact, it's a road movie, but unlike any other one you've seen. Witty dialogue, great performances and top-notch production values make this a classic--one of those movies that you can't see could be improved, because everything is so right. If you enjoyed 'Ridicule', you'll enjoy this. I can't recommend it highly enough, and I only wish I could find a copy on DVD.
