On paper this film had every possibility of working ... [but] the dialogue is excruciating, and it makes the actors saying it look bad ... Watching Seberg is to become increasingly disheartened, as it strays deeper into bathos, incredulity and cliché.

Seberg is played by Kristen Stewart, and thanks to sterling work by the costume and make-up department she looks more like Seberg than you might have imagined...

Not really a biopic because it handles only a short time in Jean's life from 1968 onward, this makes its subject something of a Hollywood martyr and strains for relevancy to the point of awkwardness.

Another terrific showcase for the talented Stewart.

What's left is an oddly muted simulation that works more as a refraction of its current star than its historical subject.

A stronger focus on Seberg may have made for a more satisfying film.

As well as looking every inch the part, Stewart does a solid job charting the slow, painful descent of a popular actress who is hounded to deeper and deeper levels of desperation and paranoia.

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.

Still manages to command attention - flaws and all - thanks to the sublime work of [Kristen] Stewart

Kristen Stewart's fine-tuned performance is as forthright and aware as actress Jean Seberg was politically and romantically fearless.

When you have Kristen Stewart playing a famously contradictory and motivationally elusive character, you really shouldn't put her in the background and make her wallpaper to your silly FBI story.

Stewart... gives it her best shot as Seberg, but it's never quite enough in an uneven film that raises more questions than it answers and, at a more fundamental level, just never really convinces.
January 14, 2020
Stewart gives another great performance but the otherwise good film feels a little thin due to the lack of sub-plot.
January 14, 2020
The film is just another of those American movies that lament the 1960s' dark side while enjoying the period details: Seberg's dresses; Mad Men-style smoking and drinking; agents in browline specs and white shirts.
January 14, 2020
It's a missed opportunity...
January 14, 2020
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.
January 13, 2020
Despite the soap opera script from Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, Stewart elevates what's on the page (and there isn't much) to something quite sublime
January 13, 2020
An interesting film...the performances are very good, and Kristen Stewart is always interesting to watch because she completely commits to performances...
January 13, 2020
Sadly, despite a fine performance from Kristen Stewart in the lead, Seberg misses the mark by turning her story into a two-hander focusing both on her radical chic affiliations and the fictionalised FBI agent...
