Marie Antoinette

Continuity mistake: At the end when Marie is sitting in the bed and the knock at the door startles her, her dressing gown is off her shoulder and then up on her shoulder when she sits up.


Continuity mistake: In the last scene, inside the coach, Marie Antoinette looks out the window at the palace garden. Louis asks if she's admiring her new lemon tree avenue; she answers she's only saying goodbye. If you look at the view of the window when Louis asks the question, you can see half of the fountain and the lemon tree avenue quite close. Next frame, when Marie answers, you can see almost the whole fountain and the lemon tree avenue quite far from where the coach is.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Marie Antoinette gets into the carriage she is on the left side, but when the camera focuses on her again she is sitting on the right side. Also, she is wearing a blue dress when she arrives at the tent, but when she gets out of the carriage her dress is white.

Continuity mistake: Marie Antoinette's brother, the emperor, meets with Marie and takes a bite of some pink cookie, he then puts it on the table. In the next shot, the cookie is back and untouched at the place he took it from. (01:15:40)


Revealing mistake: Kirsten Dunst's contact lenses can be seen multiple times during close-ups.

Question: Why wasn't it acceptable for Marie to breastfeed her daughter?

Answer: It was typical for royalty and the aristocracy to remain extremely "hands off" regarding child rearing. Nannies, wet nurses, and tutors tended to all their offsprings' needs, and parents usually spent relatively little time with their children. It would be considered extremely odd for a queen to engage in something so personal and common as breastfeeding her child.
