Seberg

Critics 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.

  • Everything about this is so superficial and the dialogue spells out absolutely everything.

    February 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The chief problem with Seberg, as is often the case with biopics, is that the filmmakers never really find the character underlying the historical figure.

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's an indulgent picture, a performance in search of a vehicle, a feat of set-dressing rather than the engrossing drama Jean Seberg deserved.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 14, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Kristen Stewart's performance burns with far greater intensity than the middling material that surrounds it.

    January 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • [T]he film... is fantastically flat.
