Seberg

Premiering at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, this anxiety-inducing thriller sees the venerable actress Jean Seberg (played by Kristen Stewart) transition from a demure ingénue to an outspoken activist, pursued by the FBI for her unyielding politics. Getting her start in Hollywood after winning a nationwide talent contest, the Iowa-born Seberg soon traded the US for France, where she became synonymous with cinema’s experimentally daring New Wave movement thanks to her now legendary role in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1960 masterpiece Breathless. Upon returning home, Seberg lent her stardom to leftist causes, from black rights to anti-Vietnam war protests, and found herself targeted by the government, who destroyed her reputation. Judging by the trailer, this biopic will be a thorough investigation of Jean Seberg’s tragically short life that showcases a sensational performance from Stewart.

‘Seberg’ is released in cinemas on 10 January 2020.
