Jeanne du Barry follows Jeanne Vaubernier (Maïwenn), a woman born into poverty, who uses her intellect and charms to climb the social ladder. Her lover, the Comte du Barry, grown rich thanks to Jeanne’s amorous intrigues, wishes to present her to the King (Depp) and orchestrates a meeting through the influential Duc de Richelieu. The encounter goes far beyond his expectations: for Louis XV and Jeanne, it’s love at first sight. With the courtesan, the King rediscovers his appetite for life: so much so that he can no longer live without her and decides to make her his official favourite. Jeanne moves into the Palace of Versailles as scandal and revolution ensue.

No one wants a girl from the streets at Court!


“Maïwenn is a major filmmaker and ’Jeanne du Barry’ demands to be taken seriously.“ Variety
