Nitehawk celebrates the 10th anniversary of Sofia Coppola’s MARIE ANTOINETTE with a special Booze & Books 35mm screening!
Based on the thorough (and thoroughly engrossing) biography of Marie Antoinette by Antonia Fraser, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette takes a luscious look on the misunderstood Queen of France. By incorporating modern elements with the soundtrack and other periodic anachronistic objects, Coppola adds to her trilogy of films that explore life defining experiences of young women by making the 18th century accessible. Marie Antoinette, born in Austria and married off to become the Queen of France at a ridiculously young age, was a complex historical character who indulged, loved, and lost on extreme terms.
As always, there will be an inspired cocktail and special treats. We want candy!
