The Absurdist's Marie Antoinette

I'm pretty obsessed with all things French. I believe the correct term is Francophile. I especially love the gorgeous tragedy of the French Revolution... I admit to making snarky bastille jokes when I A) see piles of junk or B) any time I walk into a furniture store: "There's enough chairs here to build the Bastille"... I'll be here all night. Plus, what self-respecting theater kid HASN'T seen at least 4 different high school musical versions of Les Mis? 

I'm pretty taken with Marie Antoinette. That poor thing.
Here is my tribute. The Absurdist's version of Marie Antoinette.
Dear Marie, I'm pretty sure you'd like what we've done with your memory. Frivolous and unnecessary. But you'd like it just the same.

I've been itching to watch this movie, but never have gotten around to it. This has been in my system for over three years now. Heads will roll (see what I did there?? I'm ashamed of this pun, though it delights me) if I don't get my hands on this film soon. Anyone want to lend me a copy?
