Genre: Biography, Drama, Thriller. Dir: Benedict Andrews. Country: UK / USA.
French New Wave darling and Breathless star, Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart), was targeted in the late 1960s by the FBI because of her support of the civil rights movement, and her romantic involvement with Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), among others. In Benedict Andrews’ noir-ish thriller, Seberg’s life and career are destroyed by Hoover’s overreaching surveillance and harassment in an effort to suppress and discredit Seberg’s activism.
