The purpose of her marriage to Louis XVI is to advance her families social economic status and mend the relationship between the two countries. In order to successfully accomplish the tasks at hand, she copes with the unbelievable pressure to birth a baby boy to the royal lineage in very peculiar ways. Moreover, after marring Louis XVI, he rejects consummating their marriage. Speculations surface about his his sexual identity. Not engaging in sexual intercourse causes enormous amounts of stress for Marie. Director Sofia Coppola amazingly crafts the film Marie Antoinette (2006) from the narrative of Marie Antoinette. Coppola cleverly uses food as a motif to support themes about gender, sexuality and social class during the sixteenth century.
