This multilayered, immensely entertaining drama from the great contemporary French director Olivier Assayas (Summer Hours) is a singular look at the intersection of high art and popular culture. The always extraordinary Juliette Binoche (Code Unknown) is stirring as Maria, a stage and screen icon who is being courted to star in a new production of the play that made her famous only this time she must assume the role of the older woman. Kristen Stewart (Twilight) matches her punch for punch as her beleaguered assistant, called upon to provide support both professional and emotional for her mercurial boss. And Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo) is Maria's arrogant new castmate, a starlet waiting in the wings. An amorphous, soul-searching tale, filled with ethereal images of it's Swiss Alps setting, Clouds of Sils Maria brilliantly dramatizes one woman's reckoning with herself and the world.
