Featuring career-best magic from Binoche (currently starring in 'Who You Think I Am' - exclusively on Curzon Home Cinema) and an award-winning star turn from Kristen Stewart (Best Supporting Actress César 2015; the first American actress to ever win the award), 'Clouds of Sils Maria' is a dazzlingly performed meditation on power, desire and the passing of time as well as a gripping psychological drama.
At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Binoche) is asked to perform in a new production of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But time has passed and she will now play a different part: a character unhealthily obsessed with a beautiful younger woman. Departing to the Swiss Alps to rehearse with her dedicated assistant (Kristen Stewart), Maria begins to see life reflecting art and finds herself drawn into an inexorable web of doubt and fear.
'Clouds of Sils Maria' is expertly staged by Olivier Assayas ('Personal Shopper', 'Non-Fiction'),
