10 years of Flick Filosopher: have fun storming the palace

If you missed The Affair of the Necklace at the multiplex — and almost everyone did — then do be sure to check it out on DVD. From my review:

Think The Princess Bride‘s cheeky humor meets Shakespeare in Love‘s aristocratic hanky-panky, with just a self-conscious smidgen of Braveheart‘s quest for honor thrown in for Academy-baiting good measure. This rollicking tale of intrigue and scandal in the court of Marie Antoinette has it all: sex, violence, conspiracy, lust, gossip, forgery, orgies, swordfighting, corruption, prognostication, beheading, actual bodice ripping, and revolting peasants.
