I want to start of by saying that all of Sofia Coppola’s films I have never really enjoyed. Others of hers include Lost in Translation (2003) and Somewhere (2010). I have tried to watch this film several times in the hope that by watching it again it gets better but each time is the same. I didn’t think that the ending was very good and also on the weak side. I was waiting for the next scene but it finished without any information so I was a little confused. Sofia Coppola is not good at knowing how to end a film. It is the same in all her films I have watched. Considering this is a historical film I got no sense or understanding of any history. At the Academy Awards in 2007 this won 1 Oscar for Best Achievement in Costume Design.
