Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz were in Cannes today at the photo call for Olivier Assayas’s Clouds Of Sils Maria. Have you seen the trailer? It looks great. Binoche plays an actress who has to contend with a younger, bratty one. The relationship mirrors her connection with her assistant, played by Kristen Stewart. We are passing the Bechdel Test over and over again in this film.
The reviews of Clouds Of Sils Maria have been pretty good. And even those critics who aren’t totally on board with it are singling out Stewart’s performance as the standout, the most nuanced of her career. She wasn’t there this afternoon to celebrate. She arrived in Cannes today. So she’ll be on the carpet tonight, or now, given the time difference, depending where you are.
Maybe she just didn’t want to sit on the press conference?
