She had to let her servants go.

My maid knows the cook.

You know everyone.

Comtesse de Noailles

looks very out of sorts.

I think her husband's been

causing a little problem lately...

...spending far too much time

with his stable boys.

Too much.

Marie Antoinette looks

very pretty tonight.


Darling, a new life, unfortunately.

When you think about it,

this poor Marie Antoinette.

So young, so...

I think she should

go back to her country.

Look at her, so disgusting.

The comtesse is looking rather

dour this evening, don't you think?

Always dour. Always tragic.

Can't believe they've brought

those ghastly aunts out again.

Where have they been

hiding them all these years?

Oh, really? This is shocking.

What is she...?

It's so awful, I can't--

Oh, my goodness.

Who is she?

That lady is here

to give pleasure to the king.

That's du Barry, the king's mistress.

She wouldn't be allowed at court...

...but the king did some maneuvering

to secure her a title.

The one thing I've learned

about girls from the gutter... they know their jewels.

No way are those fake.

You see that?

Is this the way

people are treating me?

To the stocks.

Nobody treats me like a lady here.

Now she's staring at me.

It's so awful.

- She should not be sitting at this table.

- I'll have one of--

Did you hear that?

- She just burped.

- Out of the whorehouse, darling.

- I don't know who you're referring to.

- Everyone at this table is for sale.

- Curls.

- What a little tart.

Well, she's not the only one at this

table, darling. Take a look around.

Look at this beautiful

Marie Antoinette. I look like her?

- Don't you think so?

- A long time ago.

Oh, you exaggerate.

She has blue eyes like me.

I suppose she's rather sweet.

For an Austrian.

I think she's delightful.
