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

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 know that when you see my rating you will think "it can't be That Bad". It is. If you don't believe me, then please rent the DVD (hope you have NetFlix). After you watch it, please read any other reviews that I have made because you will realize I'll tell you the truth and that I'm not one of the Hollywood flunkies that rate movies high to get more sales.
I hope the movie was recorded digitally and not on film. It would be a shame to waste all of that good film. The first few minutes of the film start off very s-l-o-w and then, very quickly, proceeds to get even slower. The movies starts nowhere, goes nowhere, and then ends in the same location that it started.
After reading someones bad review I rented the movie anyway because Sofia Coppola wrote and directed it. I wish I would have believed his review. I plan to read more of them:)
