Description In July 1789, the French Revolution is rumbling. Far from the turmoil, at the Château de Versailles, King Louis XVI, Queen Marie-Antoinette and their courtiers keep on living their usual carefree lives. But when the news of the storming of the Bastille reaches them, panic sets in and most of the aristocrats and their servants desert the sinking ship, leaving the Royal Family practically alone. Which is not the case of Sidonie Laborde, the Queen's reader, a young woman, entirely devoted to her mistress; she will not give her up under any circumstances. What Sidonie does not know yet is that these are the last three days she will spend in the company of her beloved Queen...

    Good to see Kruger getting some meaty lead roles. She's not just a pretty face.

    my favorite scene is the elaborate sucking and penetration enjoyed by the queen - maximizing orgasm even with pilgrams storming the gates

    You are not born a lesbian or gay. It is a choice. The only people actually born that way, are Hermaphrodites.

    What a waste - the destruction of the Aristocrats - planned and executed by the "communists" - though they did not call themselves that then.. covetous monsters really... pointing fingers, saying that one.. greedy.. as if a saint is a person who goes around giving money... idiotus stupendis... coins.. writing checks.. pushing buttons... moving an object from A to B... robotics... but what spirit, intention, informs the action?.. greed, that word does not appear in the bible, kjv. It is written, thou shalt not covet any thing that is thy neighbour's.... guns .. murderous thieving intent.. the merchant class... spice, coffee, chocolate.. barons... history - so full of tragedy... covetousness... addicts... dealers..

    how did i not know this existed??

    This is an interpolation...we don't necessarily think for sure she had this, but this is trying to explain how women were with each other in this period. Much like Tipping the Velvet, this is trying understand sexuality, this could be real. There are documents and evidence that could somewhat support this but in closed doors what do we know when it's not written? I saw this and it was a brilliantly acted period piece and very authentic to some of the details.

    This movie pretty much does to the France what 47 Ronin did to Japan. It's not a bad film but either way Hollywood again totally distorted history to appeal to today's public. +your making a dramatic event in history look way less awful than it actually was

    Being gay is a new thing. Back then nobody ever came out and said they were gay because everyone was with the Catholic church and that was a sin to them. If you came out and said you were gay in the 1950s then they would make you get therapy because they thought you were mental.
