Weekly Film Journal: In Marie Antoinette, how is the Palace of Versailles constructed as a virtual space and Dunst’s teenage Marie Antoinette a virtual historical figure? In Marie Antoinette, most of the story takes place in the Palace of Versailles, where Coppola constructs as a virtual space. For instance, in the sequences shot inside the palace, the lavishing baroque decoration makes the royal life seems exciting. However, outside the castle, the finely- trimmed lawn and empty roads make the lifestyle look isolated and unreal, and this contrast indeed makes the palace appears virtual.
