Seberg Rated 15

Seberg

Dir. Benedict Andrews. UK/USA, 2019. 1h 42m. Starring Kristen Stewart, Margaret Qualley, Zazie Beetz, Stephen Root, Vince Vaughn, Anthony Mackie.

Star of Jean-Luc Godard’s masterpiece Breathless, Jean Seberg was the darling of New Wave cinema during the 1960s. However, she also became the focus of an FBI investigation due to her political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal. In this political thriller, Kristen Stewart stars as the actress whose life and career came under threat from the US government’s overreaching surveillance and targeted harassment.

‘The picture is potent and engaging; even its fictionalized elements ring with the spirit of truth. And Stewart is off the charts, though that’s hardly a surprise.’ Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

‘The luminous Kristen Stewart keeps you glued throughout, giving a coolly compelling performance that becomes steadily more poignant as the subject unravels.’ David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
