Seberg Reviews

January 18, 2020
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.
January 14, 2020
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.
January 14, 2020
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...
January 13, 2020
Stewart is the only saving grace in this misfire of a film - she really does own the screen. It's just a shame the makers don't do her, or the legacy of Jean Seberg, justice.
January 12, 2020
This portrait of a woman pushed to breaking point coheres around a fine, friable performance from Kristen Stewart.
January 10, 2020
[T]he film... is fantastically flat.
January 10, 2020
By the end, it feels as if the real [Jean] Seberg has been edged out of her own biopic.
January 10, 2020
Stewart is utterly perfect. It's all in her eyes and movement, it says so much more than the spoken.
January 9, 2020
Seberg, for all its best intentions, ultimately fails for not being as radical as its own inspiration.
January 9, 2020
The film never quite rings true.
January 8, 2020
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.
January 8, 2020
Seberg is quietly chilling in its depiction of the way an individual's beliefs can so readily lead to them being branded an enemy of the people.
January 8, 2020
Stewart's magnetism can't compensate for the script's sketchiness. Seberg's story deserves to be told - what a tragedy that this biopic's finest feature is its frocks.
