Seberg Reviews

January 8, 2020
Despite the considerable talent involved, Seberg is not the story the titular woman deserved to have told about her.
December 19, 2019
The biopic doesn't get serious until the final act when it's too late to be saved.
December 13, 2019
[Kristen Stewart] is well cast and the costumes are great. I just didn't think it was a particularly well-written film.
December 13, 2019
We have a very cold movie, very distant, very passive, that doesn't risk, and ends up being very little purposeful. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 13, 2019
Seberg doesn't get Jean Seberg's story quite right.
December 13, 2019
However well-intentioned the effort to unearth Seberg's legacy and open this shameful chapter in American History, the movie's simplistic approach doesn't quite do her memory justice.
December 13, 2019
Kristen Stewart is phenomenal here, though ultimately not able to save "Seberg" from being a disappointment.
December 13, 2019
Throughout, the filmmakers occlude the most fascinating and potentially powerful elements of Jean Seberg's history.
December 13, 2019
Obvious points are made repeatedly; characters spout slogans rather than naturalistic dialogue; dramatic payoffs feel unearned.
December 12, 2019
By the end, Stewart is enough of a force to give Seberg's darkest moments their due, but it's too little, too late for the superficial soup that is the movie that bears her name.
December 12, 2019
Sadly, what's going to be lost is another great performance by Stewart in a film that few will see and less will remember.
December 11, 2019
Makes the faux-pas of making Jean Seberg a supporting player in her own biopic.
September 24, 2019
Although there are also slight glimpses of Seberg's idyllic image on screen confronting the turbulence of her private life, the film tiptoes over that. [Full review in Spanish]

For those of us for whom her work means so much, we deserve better. Kristen Stewart deserves better. And most of all, of course, Jean Seberg deserves better.
September 14, 2019
A bland period piece with an irritating lack of focus.
September 13, 2019
a mixed bag... felt overly conventional and a bit cheesy.
September 12, 2019
Seberg is too baseline competent to be declared a disaster.
September 11, 2019
Sadly it chickens out on the tough work required and Kristen Stewart is left to do the heavy lifting, but she is only one woman and not even her boundless appeal can buoy something that seems so determined to sink.
September 9, 2019
Seberg's story is hugely dramatic, infuriating and timely - well worth a screen adaptation - but we only get superficial insights into its subject, her cinematic accomplishments, the experiences that shaped her politics and the movements she aligned with.
September 9, 2019
A film that lacks a consistent POV or thematic purpose to such a degree that it becomes grating.
