Jeanne du Barry had its debut at the Cannes Film Festival and has already garnered its first wave of reviews and buzz, including a seven-minute standing ovation at Cannes. However, the French period drama, at the time of this writing, sports a 49% from critics on review-aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. While the film’s script — co-written by Maïwenn, Teddy Lussi-Modeste, and Nicolas Livecchi — seems to falter in the eyes of critics, Depp’s performance and the film’s costumes and visuals are applauded.

Based on the real-life relationship between Louis XV and Madame du Barry, the film focuses on the titular character, the illegitimate daughter of an impoverished seamstress and her meteoric rise through Louis XV’s court. Shunned by many, including Marie Antoinette, the sheer presence of Barry shook many, and this should translate to an intriguing drama accompanied by the usual bells and whistles associated with period pieces.
