In short: Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas, the film stars Léa Seydoux as one of Marie’s ladies-in-waiting, seemingly innocent but working her way into her mistress’s special favors, until history tosses her fate onto a different path. With the action moving from the drawing rooms of the nobles to the back quarters of those who serve, this is a period film at once accurate and sumptuous. Diane Kruger gives her best performance to date as the ill-fated Queen and Virginie Ledoyen is the Queen’s special friend Gabrielle de Polignac.
