SPOTLIGHT ON KRISTEN STEWART: In a performance both shattering and captivating, Kristen Stewart transforms into tragic screen legend and fashion icon Jean Seberg, an American actress who became an instant international film darling following Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless and whose progressive political ties to the Black Panther party made her a person of interest for the FBI. Echoes of both the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements rattle beneath every sumptuous frame of Rachel Morrison’s (Mudbound) cinematography, as Seberg tries to stay afloat amid a Hoover-era surveillance operation run by a promising rookie agent (a smoldering Jack O’Connell, Starred Up). With an extensive theatre background, director Benedict Andrews (Una) ambitiously reshapes what could have been just a standard (albeit extremely timely) biopic into something boldly cinematic: a gripping, unshakable thriller about a fascinating woman, whose unwavering courage to use her voice, fame, and finances in support of civil rights and social justice resulted in a frightening, malicious campaign to defame and destroy her.
