The retelling of France's iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen, and ultimately the fall of Versailles.
Hollywood actor Johnny Marco, nested in his luxury hotel of choice, is a stimulated man. Drinking, parties and women keep a creeping boredom under wraps in between jobs. He is the occasional father of a bright girl, Cleo, who may be spoiled but doesn't act it. When Cleo's mother drops her off and leaves town, Johnny brings her along for the ride, but can he fit an 11-year-old girl into his privileged lifestyle? Written by
Peter Brandt Nielsen
Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning spent a lot of time together prior to the shoot in order to build the father-daughter relationship their characters have. For example, Dorff sometimes picked Fanning up after school. See more »
Cleo toggles between having and not having braces from scene to scene. This is most noticeable in scenes in the living room with Sammy and scenes in Johnny's car. See more »
I found the movie really boring, the worst I've ever seen. It starts with a scene that wasgoes on and on, without changeing the view of the camera, so you just hear the noises of the cars going in circles; you get the feeling that it is never ending because it runs like 10 times or more... I guess the filmmaker wanted to bring that feeling but it would be enough 3 or 4 times. The same thing happens in the hotel, they show the 2 girls dancing and so it's getting monoton, because it takes to long and so is almost the whole movie. And even in the end when the Hollywood Star lets go even his car he remains lost and no spiritual sense is given to his life...
