When the internationally renowned actress Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is offered a role in a London revival of a career-defining drama that she appeared in two decades earlier, she’s confronted with a dilemma: Does she accept the older character now being offered her—and is she prepared to let go of the younger one? Aided and abetted by her assistant Val (Kristen Stewart), she retreats to the secluded Sils Maria, in the Swiss Alps. In an exquisite pairing of talents, Stewar t proves herself a terrific match for the always wonderful Binoche in scenes par tly about an actor’s process, partly about intimacy and their personal dynamic. And then, there’s the inevitable generational shift, underscored by the appearance of Chloë Grace Moretz as the upstart Hollywood starlet who will play Enders/Binoche’s earlier role. With inspired casting, filmmaker Olivier Assayas’s multilayered variations on the themes of life, art, and age are a rich, satisfying experience.
