A vibrant telling of the classic story of Marie Antoinette, the na�ve Austrian princess, who is thrown into the scandal-ridden world of the French aristocracy when she is betrothed to King Louis XVI.

While still a teenager, Marie Antoinette conquers her fears and becomes France's iconic queen.

Marie Antoinette is a 14-year-old Austrian who is about to wed France's next king, Louis XVI. Her new life is a constant barrage of pomp and circumstance, which baffles the otherwise ordinary teenager.

While love has nothing to do with the union between Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, producing an offspring does.

Unfortunately, Louis XVI shows no interest in having a physical relationship with his willing wife. Instead, Marie Antoinette begins to embrace her life of royalty, biding her time by shopping and partying and living the life of a spoiled teenager.

As time passes, Louis XVI works out his problems and soon the couple has begun to bear children.

But eventually, the impoverished French people become fed up with the disparity of wealth between the royal family and the average Frenchman, unleashing a revolt that would change the course of history forever.

This movie is rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity and innuendo.
