“Clouds of Sils Maria” stars Kristen Stewart alongside Juliette Binoche as a veteran actress who comes face-to-face with an uncomfortable reflection of herself when she agrees to be part of a project that launched her career 20 years ago.
Directed by Olivier Assayas, the drama was critically acclaimed and won Stewart the César Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first American actress ever to win the well-regarded French accolade. Now, the film is getting the Criterion Collection treatment and its extra features includes a 38-minute interview with the two stars of the film.
In a new clip used to promote the new featurette, Binoche talks about her relationship with Assayas and how she previously felt like she didn’t get to know him when they worked together on “Summer Hours.” But that all changed when she took on the female-led film.
As for Stewart, the actress talks about how she perceived the female relationships in the film.
“There was something between these two women that I wanted to get to the bottom of,” she stated. “And I think probably only by the end of the movie I realized that the reason I was into it was because these women encompass almost every relationship that you can imagine having with a person in life.”
“Clouds of Sils Maria” is now available on The Criterion Collection. Watch the clip below:
