Still shot from the movie: Marie Antoinette.

Marie Antoinette

Although the scenery is stunning, the costumes spectacular and the food styling deliciously appealing, beyond this striking visual imagery there is little to lose your head over in Director Sofia Coppola's quirky, laborious tale about France's most tarnished monarch (played by Kirsten Dunst).

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

At the masquerade party, Marie Antoinette and her party appear to act differently because no one knows who they are. How can concealing your identity do away with inhibitions? In what ways, might a person act differently if he or she were not concerned about being “unmasked”?

Marrying off their children was one way royal households ensured political alliances. Is this practice, or anything similar to it, still employed today? Do moneyed families want their children to marry equally wealthy partners? Or do politically powerful people look for similarly influential families to marry into? What other kinds of “alliances” may families look to make?

In what ways does Marie Antoinette find it difficult to fit into her new family? How can a person’s own family cultural, social, political or religious traditions affect their marriage? What other kinds of differences have to be dealt with when you marry into a family?
