Linenhall Film Club continues its autumn season with the insightful and superbly acted French drama Clouds Of Sils Maria on Tuesday October 20 at 8pm.
Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche ) is an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous 20 years earlier. Back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young woman 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 (Kristen Stewart ) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz ) 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.
