Dir: Olivier Assayas | USA | 2014 | 124 mins
Cast | Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart
Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart give fantastic performances in this bewitchingly complex drama from Olivier Assayas (Something in the Air). Binoche is Maria, a diva actress whose career is on the wane, and who is served by her smart personal assistant Valentina (Stewart) and Jo-Ann, a nubile young actress (Chloe Grace Moretz) sizzling with confidence and sexuality and eager to take Maria’s crown. Assayas has delivered a razor-sharp script that explores the peaks and troughs of celebrity, the private and public and the perils of life and work for an ageing actress. A captivatingly modern All About Eve.
“Supple, confident and playful” **** Xan Brooks, Guardian
