6 thoughts on “Jefferson in Paris (1995) short review

  1. ‘this relationship probably needs to be the focus of its own film (or many films!) to really fully explore it.’

    Have you watched Sally Hemings: An American Scandal (2000)? It focuses primarily on Sally she relationship with Jefferson.

  2. I watched this again last night, and I think this short review is spot on! The one thing I couldn’t get over in the film (which I didn’t notice as much in 1995), was the actor portraying Louis XVI — he looked about 60, and Louis would have been 35 at the beginning of the Revolution. I know the aging process was different in the 18th century, but this just seemed to be a raging inaccuracy. It annoyed me more than it should have probably, but STILL!
