Les adieux à la reine

France, Spain, 2012


Versailles, July 1789. Sidonie Laborde is a young lady companion serving Queen Marie Antoinette as her reader. When the dramatic news that the people has risen up and conquered the Bastille arrives from Paris, the peacefulness of the kings and of the entire courts is shaken. Everything seems to fall apart, even the reason of life of the young reader….Based on the novel “Farewell my Queen” by Chantal Thomas, the movie received ten nominations for the César Awards 2013, winning for the best cinematography, best set designing and best costume design.
