Clouds of Sils Maria brings together Kristen Stewart, Juliette Binoche and Chloë Grace Moretz in a drama where, at the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide.
Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps.
A young Hollywood starlet (Moretz) with a penchant for scandal is to take on the role of Sigrid, and maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.
A second trailer has now been released, and I’m still not wowed by this, but if Clouds of Sils Maria looks like a film for you, then it finally has a UK release date of May 15th, which is almost a year since I posted the first trailer for this film! And the US got it in December, too!
