Stunning period piece looks at the influence of the Queen of Romania at Fisher Theatre
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the stunning new period piece “Queen Marie” showing May 28-June 3 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Devastated by the First World War and plunged into political controversy, Romania's every hope accompanies its queen on her mission to Paris to lobby for international recognition of its great unification at the 1919 peace talks.
Princess Marie of Edinburgh was born in 1875, one of Queen Victoria’s countless granddaughters. At the age of seventeen she was coerced into a dynastic marriage with Crown Prince Ferdinand of Romania. As a good royal and a good Victorian, Marie had a highly developed sense of duty and became a passionate champion of her adopted country. This passion is at the heart of “Queen Marie”.
