Clouds of Sils Maria looks like an airy puzzle, and a showcase for its excellent cast. The new film from Olivier Assayas (Carlos, Demonlover) casts Juliette Binoche as an actress forced to confront the progression of time and her career. She once found fame playing the ingenue in a play about a woman who drives her employer to suicide; now she’s asked to take the play’s tragic role, as an emerging new star (Chloe Grace Moretz) nabs the juicier part. Meanwhile, her assistant (Kristen Stewart) may be playing out a real-life version of the play in her relationship with Binoche’s character. Check out a new international Clouds of Sils Maria trailer below.
