On the new period drama “Marie Antoinette,” you won’t hear the title character say the famous line, “Let them eat cake.”

Premiering Sunday, March 19 (10 p.m. on PBS), “Marie Antionette” has already been renewed for a second season. It was originally a Canal+ and BBC Two production overseas created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Deborah Davies (“The Favourite”). Set in the eighteenth century, the play follows the famous last Queen of France (Schule), starting with her adolescence, as she is sent from her home in Austria to France to marry the awkward Louis XVI (Louis Cunningham) . , who will not talk to him and will not be seen taking a bath.

She’s a fish out of water at Versailles, struggling to understand her way of life and deal with court intrigue while Louis XV (James Purefoy, “Rome”) reigns.

“It completely changed my view of him,” said Schule, who is German and based in Berlin.

“I think there’s a lot of misogyny about him.” It is more complex than people think. It’s something that we’re really covering in our shows. Her overall image is that she was a luxury junkie who spent a lot of money, big hair, nice clothes. And yes, it was she. But why? If you look at the circumstances, he left his country at the age of 14, never seeing his mother again. She was forced into a child marriage with someone who would not touch her for 7 years, and her whole task in life was to give birth to an heir, so she had to endure that humiliation for 7 years, even though was not his fault

Shule said she saw the 2006 Sofia Coppola film starring Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, but was not impressed by it.

“The film angers me a lot, because it stays on the surface and does not show the complexity of her life, the struggle she was facing, and how regressive the environment she was living in. He was trying to get rid of the forces he had. I think most of his ideas today are shaped by this Coppala movie, and it doesn’t do him justice.

But, the show still depicts Marie Antoinette donning elaborate clothing and wigs.

“I got the part and was happy for 10 minutes,” Shule said. “And then I remembered I would have to be in a brassiere for five months and it would be hell!” Wearing these clothes for five months gives you an idea of ​​how these clothes were designed to suppress women. You cannot breathe properly or move freely, you depend on other people to put on or take off your clothes. Of course you are more mobile in trousers.

“The moment I understood why she partyed so much, why she distracted herself with all these things she’s now condemned for — I really felt like I understood her. It was the first time I I really let my childishness run free on set, because normally I want to look very professional. But Marie Antoinette gave me the right to have fun and be goofy.
