But, Louis does not cooperate, and by the time she becomes queen, Marie Antoinette has alienated both royalty and the public. An Oscar was received for Best Costume Design.

Teenager Richard Samuels (Zac Efron) aspires to be an actor and lands the small role of Lucius in Orson Welles' (Christian McKay) 1937 Broadway production of "Julius Caesar." Rehearsals ensue amidst rivalries and complaints by cast members about Orson showing up late for rehearsals. Richard falls for 20-year-old production assistant Sonja Jones (Claire Danes) who is not thrilled with Richard because she is overly ambitious and has no time for someone of Richard's low position in the theatrical world. Despite many problems, the show does go on, and Orson does present his ground-breaking production of "Julius Caesar."
