Superficial and pointless

Apart from the gorgeous costumes and highlighting the decadence of the era, this film had little to offer. Dunst does well with the script she is given but there's just no substance to the plot! The whole film revolves around whether MA's husband will have sex with her to produce an heir. She doesn't accomplish anything and very little else happens. I don't recommend.

Luv it!

I love everything about it and it’s one of my favourite movies. I want this to get more attention I mean it’s pretty popular but it deserves more. I love the actors, the visuals, the dialogue. I know it’s not 100% Accurate but It’s a job well done. But there is too much showing in some scenes and I know it’s history and all that but could you at least tone it down a little? Other than that’s it awesome
