Kirsten Dunst's new period movie Marie-Antoinette has been selected to compete at the coveted Cannes Film Festival in May.
The Sofia Coppola-directed film, co-starring Shopgirl actor Jason Schwartzman, sees a 19-year-old Viennese girl became the queen of France in 1744 - before being famously beheaded. Marie-Antoinette is one of the early contenders for the Cannes top prize - the Palme d'Or.
