‘Seberg’ First Look Unveils Kristen Stewart as ‘Breathless’ Actress

‘Seberg’ First Look Unveils Kristen Stewart as ‘Breathless’ Actress

Kristen Stewart transforms into “Breathless” actress Jean Seberg in the first look at Amazon Studios’ “Seberg.” Previously titled “Against All Enemies,” the historical drama is the latest directorial effort from theater director and “Una” filmmaker Benedict Andrews.

“Seberg” stars Stewart as the French New Wave icon during the 1960s, when she was targeted by the FBI because of her political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal. In addition to Stewart, the “Seberg” cast includes Jack O’Connell, Anthony Mackie, Colm Meaney, Margaret Qualley, Vince Vaughn, Zazie Beetz, Stephen Root and Yvan Atta. The film is based on a true story.

For Stewart, “Seberg” is the latest entry in her list of filmmaker-driven independent films. The actress last appeared opposite Laura Dern in “JT LeRoy,” which opened in the U.S. this past April. “Seberg” is world premiering at the 2019 Venice International Film Festival in an out of competition slot. The drama is written by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. The movie is one of two Stewart-led projects debuting this fall movie season; the other is a starring role in the Sony tentpole “Charlie’s Angeles,” a rare studio film for Stewart. Elizabeth Banks directs.

Andrews is an Australian theatre veteran who earned strong reviews for his directorial debut “Una,” The psychological drama, based on the play “Blackbird,” starring Rooney Mara, Riz Ahmed, and Ben Mendelsohn, and premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in 2016. IndieWire David Ehrlich praised Andrews for drawing out a riveting performance from Mara, who Ehrlich said gave one of the best performances of 2017. Many Anderson fans are hoping he can elicit similar strengths out of Stewart.
