What do people of today gain from popularizing negative rumors about Marie Antoinette?

Take Sofia Coppola for example. The movie she made is a total trash. There’s no moral lesson in the movie. I can’t even consider it artistic freedom. I also don’t understand why people keep on insisting, even after so many decades had passed, that she had an affair. I don’t know what people get from continuously maligning Marie Antoinette since she’s been dead for a very, very long time. Why don’t people try to clear her name for her for a change, since she has no capacity to do it anymore? If they’re going to make an effort to make money at her reputation’s expense, at least make it historically accurate as much as possible. I find it annoying, and abhorrently foul, that Sofia Coppola attached the “let them eat cake” to Marie Antoinette, which Marie Antoinette never uttered referring to the peasants.

    I reviewed it. Hahahahaha! It had a nice premise…at the beginning. Then it went downhill halfway through.
