music mommas

19 Oct

i have rediscovered and cannot stop listening to the marie antoinette soundtrack.  it is brilliant and dripping with sweetness. in fact, the music complimented the movie in such a way, that it…well for me, actually made the movie. so thank you sofia coppola, but also a big thanks to brian reitzell, the music director on the film.

you can get a wee taste of the music brilliance from this trailor

did you know that the real Marie Antoinette’s marriage was not consummated for 7 years?  in fact there were rumors that she was getting “fulfilled” by other lovers including her good friend Princess Lamballe, newly appointed Mistress of the Wardrobe, and later Madame Polignac, governess to her children, among some men as well. now we will probably never know if this is true, but it’s a nice thought anyhow. and i love kirsten dunst, this period piece reminded me when she was just a little sprite in interview with a vampire.
