Let Them Eat is a poetic and haunting journey which spans from the turbulent time of the French Revolution to present day. From the prison cell of the former queen of France, Marie Antoinette, to Bella, a woman who seems to be leading a parallel life with a deep connection to the former queen. Seamlessly drifting from present to past, each woman's story unfolds while both struggle to make peace with their past before one leaves the earth and the other can embrace her future. Laced within the story are beautiful spoken word poems which delve deep into the hearts and souls of our two heroines exposing their secret world of passion, lust, pain, love and triumph. This is a story of great courage, strength and ever-lasting love which bridges the two lives and the two women together forever. Written by Leslie Cottle

A Modern Soap Opera
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember the Raven's Forever More? Remember Soap Opera's Dark Shadows! Well, this one woman show is reminiscent of both, as Leslie Cottle, writer, director, and actress in deep throaty tones makes us learn of a Love Forever More! Whether obsessed, possessed, or just suffering from too long an infatuation with Zeig's story of Marie Antoinette, our lovely Bella through the most marvelous and wonderful flashbacks ever made in an independent film takes us from her modern day lifestyle to scenes and memories of the last hours of Marie Antoinette caught in her cell, remembering her favorite times with her beloved soul mate, Axel Fersen.

Leslie is a true romantic, as she captures beautifully the tormented final moments of the French Queen's thoughts just before she must ascend to the gallows.

With flickering lights, romantic memories cherished forevermore, Marie Antoinette consoles herself with the thoughts of her beloved as she relies upon his love for her to carry her to her end...then suddenly, she shifts into a modern day young princess who is nurtured by a friend with a casserole dish to get her started on her morning day...Bella then takes us on her journey of a soul who encounters her own private obsession in a mystical experience, realizing the joy of her life in meeting up with her own "self" in a protected and poignant scene...

For an independent film, this is an enchanting look at a woman who believes in her heart that she is really at "one" with the tragic Marie Antoinette. Marie Antoinette, in a most interesting and beautiful encounter, counsels our young Bella to release her past and look ahead to a beautiful future...

For those who love mystery, romance, and enchantment, this is a film full of tones of Edgar Allen Poe and Zweig's Marie Antoinette that is very well executed. Leslie Cottle is marvelous portraying multiple roles as both Bella and Marie Antoinette! It is a must see for the seekers of truth, and is a thoughtful, provocative film.

I give it 8 stars, as I believe that Leslie must produce a sequel, and is just beginning a great career!
