While We're Young
Noah Baumbach. 2015. 94 m. R. USA. A24 Films.12:00 PM 2:05 PM 8:15 PM
Clouds of Sils Maria"It turns out that, as characters and actors, Binoche and Stewart are unexpectedly ideal scene partners. Binoche is the sort of star who can find harmony with almost anyone in any language. She’s luminous in everything — but she’s the only star I’ve ever seen who can so specifically adjust the wattage. " (Wesley Morris, Grantland)
Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is an internationally acclaimed actress at the peak of her career who has agreed to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous. But this time, she won't play Sigrid, an alluring young woman, but the role of Helena, Sigrid's older boss. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps and soon Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, staring at an unsettling reflection of herself.
