Let Them Eat Cake



Clip from Sofia Coppola's movie, Marie Antoinette.
Shoes are a necessity, but if you have too may pairs, you'll be blamed for overindulgence.
You may not be be sent to the guillotine like Marie Antoinette or exiled like Imelda Marcus, but beware of jealousy poisoning your life.

If you haven't watched Marie Antoinette, you really should. Not only is it fun to watch and refreshingly original in the way it is edited and the use of out-of-period music (I must say, I am so fed-up with long, supposedly "accurate" period pieces that are stretched for hours in hopes of getting an Oscar). It might give you a different perspective on life. Marie Antoinette lived a life so different than what we know. Rich or poor, peasant or queen, cake-eater or weight-watcher: women seem to be born to suffering and it takes different shapes and forms. I suppose men are just as fortunate, even though not being one I can't tell you for sure...
