On the lighter side-Movies-Marie Antoinette

Kirsten Dunst (of the First Spider Man Fame) stars as the teenager of Austria who gets married into the last French king and have a ball of time before she is executed by the French Revolutionaries. She was only 14 years when she got wed into the French Aristocracy and then got bored to death doing nothing. I was appalled by what I saw as the do nothing French Aristocracy wasted their nation's wealth while the poor person got hungry. Watching operas, eating, drinking, going to parties, strolling in their vast estate, hunting and generally doing nothing made me think that how disconnected the king of France was at that time. It was right for the people to stage a revolt, when the King does not care about their subjects. You really have to see this movie to believe what I am saying and feeling really disgusted at the wasteful of the money and lives of the French Royalty of that day. Highly recommended for the sheer absurdity.
