The Cannes Film Festival is drawing to a close, but things are just heating up. The Palme d’Or is still very much up for grabs, and one major film yet to screen in Competition is Olivier Assayas‘ “Clouds Of Sils Maria.” And after handfuls of clips and images, the first trailer has arrived and it’s promising stuff.
Led by Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, the movie follows an aging actress who stars in a new production of the play that made her famous years ago. However, the role that won her acclaim has now gone to a younger actress, played by Chloe Grace Moretz, forcing the older thespian to take a hard look at her life, career and more. It looks like particularly powerfully, and the second movie at Cannes — following David Cronenberg‘s “Maps To The Stars” — to take audiences inside the business with what looks to be an incisive edge.
“Clouds Of Sils Maria” has no U.S. release date yet, but IFC Films will be bringing it to theatres later this year. Watch below.
