Clouds of Sils Maria

Out Now On-Demand

Seductive Cannes drama following an ageing actress (Juliette Binoche) who is offered a part in a new production of the play that made her famous. But this time she’ll be playing the role of the ‘older woman’ while a cocky up-and-comer (Chloë Grace Moretz) takes the lead. Kirsten Stewart co-stars as the veteran actress’s loyal assistant. Nominated for the Palme d'Or, Cannes 2014.

The relationship here is quite beautifully drawn, with Stewart again demonstrating what a terrific performer she can be away from the shadow of Twilight. She's sharp and limber; she's a match for Binoche.

Variety (USA)


Contrasting styles between stars of two different generations make this a rich study of actorly insecurity.

Hollywood Reporter


An engaging, if rarefied, inside look at the private world of a star.

Time Out London


It’s a sexy concept that will thrill Assayas neophytes, but the director’s longtime fans will find its pleasures virtually pornographic.

Dissolve (USA)


A great midlife crisis film, in other words, and, like Irma Vep, it’s also a great meta-commentary on contemporary moviemaking...

Telegraph (UK)


This is a complex, bewitching and melancholy drama, another fearlessly intelligent film from Assayas.
