Rated: 3.5/4 May 6, 2024 Full Review Sheila O'Malley RogerEbert.com [T]he story's intriguing complexities are smoothed over, submerged, and deemed less interesting than the lovers' stunning surroundings.

Rated: 3/5 Jun 6, 2024 Full Review Michael Cook KARK-TV It's a standard "costume drama", but it is done well, with sumptuous costumes, filmed at Versailles, and the lead actress, Maiwenn, is absolutely fantastic. Rated: 8/10 Jun 5, 2024 Full Review John Serba Decider Jeanne du Barry looks amazing, with significant attention to costume and setting details; part of it was filmed in Versailles itself. Its depth stops there, though, at ankle-deep... May 22, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
