“Let them eat cake.” That’s a quote commonly attributed to Marie Antoinette, but a quick Google search will teach you that this isn’t really the truth. We’re not sure who said it.

But we can be sure that Roger Ebert took a daring stand, contrary to many other critics, in embracing Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. Yep, he didn’t just give it a thumbs-up sign. He gave it four stars.

And to keep the surprises coming, now Lisa Ann Cockrel has given Coppola’s film three and a half stars out of four!

I guess I gotta see this movie. After all, I still love Lost in Translation, and I’m rather fond of The Virgin Suicides, her first film, too. But when? Dang, my calendar’s tough.
