Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Farewell, My Queen is a French-language historical drama (subtitled in English) about the events in the days leading up to the storming of the Bastille in 1789 -- notably Marie Antoinette's personal relationships with her ladies-in-waiting and special friend. Expect to feel a bit like a voyeur allowed behind the curtains to see a queen undone by the rapid shift in politics and dwelling on the imminent loss of an illicit relationship. There's some nudity (two women are shown naked, one while sleeping), relationships between both opposite- and same-sex couples, a bit of swearing, and deep chasms between social classes.
A woman is shown disrobing and stands naked for a short time, her entire body exposed. Another woman is seen asleep naked. Innuendoes and talk of sex. Furtive sexual relationships between both opposite- and same-sex couples.
The storming of the Bastille plays a role in the story, but it's more discussed than shown.
Infrequent swearing (in subtitles) includes the word "s--t." A man's anatomy is mentioned.
The class system is clearly in effect, and the power dynamic has very damaging consequences. The ladies-in-waiting in the queen's court are treated somewhat well, but not that well.
