Clouds of Sils Maria (2014, Assayas) S: J. Binoche, K. Stewart, C. Moretz

At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (ChloŽ Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, starring Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloe Moretz, and Brady Corbet, will be released stateside on December 1, 2014.

Looks good. Have yet to see a bad film by Assayas.

I really enjoyed this mainly to the fact that Kristen displays some actually acting ability. Binoche is flat out excellent and Chloe Moretz acts to the nines (she almost steals every scene she is in), although her screen presence is limited.

Kristen Stewart became the first American actress to win a Cesar at France’s most prominent film awards show Friday. Stewart co-starred in “Cloud of Sils Maria,” directed by Olivier Assayas and also starring Juliet Binoche and Chloe Grace Moretz.

“Clouds of Sils Maria,” in which Binoche plays an actress who agrees to appear in a revival of a play that launched her career 20 years earlier, premiered in Cannes last year and was nominated for six Cesars including best actress for Binoche, best film and best director.

I know Stewart gets bagged on a lot for appearing emotionally detached, but I've always found her to exude a type of quiet intensity in her acting. I'm glad to see her getting recognized.

I too am a big fan of Stewart's acting. She's terrific in this film. I'm surprised no one's shared reviews of this movie yet. I think it's one of the greatest of 2015 (it took a while to roll out). Here's my review:

Stewart was good in that one with Julianne Moore. Damn, that one made me so sad for Moore's character cuz she was pretty cool.
