What’s this? The Dauphine of France engrossed in some online shopping whilst streaming classical music as a helpful King Louis XVI assists her with the high-technology machine?

Not quite. It’s Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman behind-the-scenes of Sofia Coppola ’s Marie Antoinette (2006).

If not for the modern take on the historic storyline, you should see this film for its magnificent sets, clever soundtrack, and beautiful cinematography. Coppola was granted special access to shoot in the Palace of Versailles and, with an elaborately-dressed star-studded ensemble, the film bagged an Oscar for Best Costume Design.
