French period drama Farewell, My Queen enjoyed two sold-out performances at the 2012 New Orleans French Film Festival that concluded yesterday. So the Prytania Theatre has decided to extend the film's run with an additional week's worth of screenings, at noon and six p.m. each day from today, Friday, August 17, through next Thursday, August 23.
The lavish film depicts the last few days before the French Revolution from the unique perspective of Marie Antoinette and her ministers, and is well worth seeing on the Prytania's large screen. Advance tickets are available here.
