Back to Spider-Man, Kirsten. STAT. Movies as bad as this can be career killers.

Beautiful cinematography of the Versailles grounds and interiors. Costuming and hair are great. This movie captures the era and puts you in the middle of the overindulgence and grandeur which helped lead to the French Revolution. No big plot points or explosions for the short attention span crowd partially explaining the lack of success at the box office. Kirsten does a superb job as do most of the cast in creating sympathy for historical figures usually given little. Great on the big screen but some of the grandeur will be lost on DVD. I enjoyed the use of modern music in addition to the classical - they were the "in" crowd.
