Queen Margot

1994, France/Italy/Germany, 159m, 4K DCP 

A blood-dripping, bodice-ripping telling of 16th-century Royal Court machinations in France. Catherine de Médici (Virna Lisi) stokes violent religious conflict even as a royal interfaith wedding—and gilded cage—is arranged for rebellious Margot (Isabelle Adjani). With Daniel Auteuil, Vincent Perez, Jean-Hugues Anglade, and Asia Argento.
