Some actors will say that their job is nothing more just playing pretend, but for others, it can be—intentionally or not—a reflection of their real life, with the roles and material sometimes sharing elements with their off-screen persona. And that dynamic seems to be at the heart of Olivier Assayas‘ “Clouds Of Sils Maria,” and a new trailer has dropped for the industry centered drama.
Starring Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Moretz, the film tells the story of an older actress who joins a new version of the play that made her famous, only to grow obsessed with the young starlet taking the star-making part. It’s a mix of ideas about celebrity and aging, though our critic in Cannes wasn’t exactly taken with it, saying the film “threads through the peaks and valleys of weighty, interesting topics, but makes no lasting impression on them.”
Still, this does look like a showcase for the trio of lead actresses, and Assayas is always one to watch. No release date from IFC Films for this one just yet, so watch below.
