This week Farewell My Queen, Benoît Jacquot‘s directorial foray into the final lesbonic days of Marie Antoinette‘s life, hits theaters. I know Trish Bendix is psyched out of her pants about it, so I thought we’d indulge our royal whimsy this week and put some of our favorite queen-playing ladies to the test. I’m invoking the “mistress” option because there are just so many good options. Who do you choose between: Emily Blunt (who played Queen Victoria in The Young Victoria), Natalie Portman (who played Queen Amidala in the Star Wars prequels, Liv Tyler (who played elven queen Arwen in Lord of the Rings), and Cate Blanchett (who played Queen Elizabeth I lots of times)?
