There aren't nearly enough great films about the French Revolution and unfortunately-many which exist are sympathetic to Marie Antoinette, posing her as a victim of entitled peasants.
That said, 2000's Quills is a dramatic take on the life of Marquis de Sade, a nobleman who was one of the key political leaders of the convention nationale following the start of the revolution.
2006's Amazing Grace touches on it as a political barrier to ending slave trade in Britain.

2012 brought us both Les adieux à la reine (titled "Farewell, My Queen" in English-language regions) and Les Misèrable.
The former is a telling of Queen Marie's love for a fan, Sidonie Laborde (played by Léa Seydoux, know for portraying Emma in lesbian romance Blue Is the Warmest Colour). It's not the best politically, but queer women are nice.
And Les Misèrable is a big ol' tentpole musical about a convicted petty thief trying to make his way in a revolutionary France.
