Barry Lyndon/Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette (2007)

Barry Lyndon (1975)

I managed to see this amazing Kubrick film last night, Barry Lyndon (1975) and it immediately reminded me of Marie Antoinette (2007) by Sofia Coppola - which I love very much. I can see how Coppola may have become interested in that era due to all of the beautiful costumes and especially the landscapes in which the elitist, wealthy and privledged lived - also interior design.

Perhaps Barry Lyndon was a possible influence for Marie Antoinette..? Very, very cool.

A must see Kubrick.
