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...

    I'm sick of the new Hollywood messages.  I can't seem to get away from the barrage of statements for the poor homosexual community.  I can only imagine that Hollywood being a world unto itself has decided it's their mission to make the rest of us educated by them, thus passive and even complicit in the acceptance of all types of sexuality... there's a reverse discrimination going on.  One must be down with pretty much any deviance or you're the arcade homophobe.  On TV, movies, even now a cereal commercial homosexuality is now portrayed as another norm and anyone with the "freedom of speech" to be opposed is treated as if racist vs. having an opposing view.  I love and respect all people and know it's wrong to treat anyone unequally or unfairly, would not adjoin myself to any such activity, but that does not mean that I have to agree that all behavior is right, best, healthy nor genetically the norm that was intended by gasp, God, now I'm a zealot right! Calm down and consider there still may exist views that are intelligent and not subversive... isn't peaceful dissent possibly and maybe there are points to be rationalized.  It's the new one sided arguments I find deplorable, as if anyone else is ignorant and militant and we're being made to sympathize with chosen behavior... race is not a choice.   Notice please I said "behavior" you can choose what you do and your lifestyle.  In having said such here, yes, I believe that we have a creator who by being such has a right to tell us what's acceptable and safe and healthy for our bodies just as you wouldn't quibble with your car manufacturer's handbook.  People frame limitations negatively thus they won't appear appealing nor sensible, but you must enjoy, relish and devour his entire word on every topic to take in the truth and incredible, beautiful overall messages for perfect, peaceful, happy living for all.

    Um guys, movies are made up. If it wants to have her riding dragons, not dying and being gay well it's called imagination. Since when does art have to reflect reality 100%? It's just an interesting story someone thought would be cool as a movie. I don't see based on a true story anywhere.
