Seberg (2020) - Rotten Tomatoes


Seberg (2020)



Critic Consensus: Seberg's frustratingly superficial treatment of a fascinating true story does a disservice to its subject -- and Kristen Stewart's performance in the central role.

Movie Info

Seberg is inspired by true events about the French New Wave darling and Breathless star, Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart), who in the late 1960s was targeted by the FBI because of her support of the civil rights movement and 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.

Alas, Australian director Benedict Andrews has no insight into this tragic story. He's more interested in making Seberg palatable to viewers who might see her as a Left-wing extremist or, indeed, a liberal phoney.

Kristen Stewart's performance burns with far greater intensity than the middling material that surrounds it.

[T]he film... is fantastically flat.

By the end, it feels as if the real [Jean] Seberg has been edged out of her own biopic.

The film never quite rings true.

For all her charisma, the miscasting of Stewart isn't helped by a berserker wardrobe department. The costumes wear the movie - the story is half-buried under a pile of sherbet lemon negligees.
