Almost a year after its 2014 premiere at Cannes, Clouds of Sils Maria will open in the US. Here’s a new trailer for the Olivier Assayas film, in which Juliette Binoche plays an older actress whose personal assistant (Kristen Stewart) convinces her to take a role she’s nervous about playing.
Specifically, the part has the older woman playing opposite a vibrant younger actress, with the additional complication being that the younger role is the one that made Binoche’s character famous in the first place. There are layers of reflection, as the roles in the film within a film begin to mirror the characters played by Binoche and Stewart, or vice versa. Check out the new Clouds of Sils Maria trailer below. Read More »
