Clouds of Sils Maria

R| 2 hr. 3 min.

Plot Summary

Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and Chloë Grace Moretz light up this exhilarating, behind-the-scenes look at art, acting and aging from acclaimed director Olivier Assayas (Carlos). Maria Enders (Binoche) is a renowned actress at the peak of her career. But when she’s cast opposite a young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Moretz) in a new production of the play that first made her famous, Maria must come to terms with what it means to be a middle-aged actress in a youth-obsessed industry. Retreating high into the mountains with her personal assistant (a revelatory Stewart, first-ever American winner of a César acting award), Maria confronts her personal demons and prepares for the most important role of her life. Set amidst the scenic splendor of the Swiss Alps, Clouds of Sils Maria is propelled by tour-de-force performances from three actresses at the top of their game.

  • Recalling the best movies about actors, from "All About Eve" to "Birdman," Clouds of Sils Maria is a bonbon spiked with wit and malice. It's also a penetrating look into the female psyche, a specialty of critic-turned-filmmaker Olivier Assayas, who wrote Juliette Binoche her first starring role, as a young actress in 1985's "Rendez-vous." show more

  • It’s not a combination most of us would’ve thought of, but Stewart and Binoche bring out the best in each other. show more

  • Clouds Of Sils Maria. swirls with provocative ideas, but they’re talked about more than dramatized show more

    Walked out after 30 minutes of boring dialogue and uninthused actors, and roaming plot.

    Walked out after 30 minutes of boring dialogue and the two actresses who sleepwalked because they, too, were bored with the script.
