Coming from a popular background, Jeanne Vaubernier (Maïwenn) becomes the lover and source of gallant income of Count Du Barry (Melvil Poupaud). The latter decides to present her to King Louis XV (Johnny Depp) thanks to the complicity of Richelieu (Pierre Richard). Between the monarch and the courtesan, what was supposed to be only a courteous meeting turns out to be a real thunderbolt to the great scandal of the court.
Jeanne du Barry, already a success in theaters
This first historical account by filmmaker and actress Maïwenn (DNA, Polisse, Mon Roi) opened Cannes 2023. Filmed in 35mm and featuring a charming cast featuring Benjamin Lavernhe, India Hair, Noémie Lvovsky or Pascal Greggory, the feature was freshly received by critics.
In spite of everything, spectators made the trip to theaters in large numbers since Jeanne du Barry had accumulated close to 700,000 fans when AVCesar published this information.
Pre-orders for the 4K edition of Jeanne du Barry are open, but technical details and bonuses are yet to come.
