I am a sucker for movies about actors. It is a profession I find extremely interesting, and doing a bit of it here and there only makes me more intrigued with it. That is part of the reason stories like The Last 5 Years and Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) strike such a chord with me. Olivier Assayas‘ latest film, Clouds of Sils Maria, like Birdman, deals with an actor (here, played by Juliette Binoche) who is aging. The film was just given a new trailer, which you can watch below.
The only film of Assayas’ I have seen up to this point is Summer Hours, also featuring Binoche. I thought it was quite a moving family drama, and I know I have been needing to catch up on more of his filmography. So, the release of this movie, which is April 10, 2015, gives me a deadline to catch up.
The cast for this film also includes Kristen Stewart and ChloÃ« Grace Moretz, both of whom I thoroughly enjoy (yes, even Stewart). Also, how great is it there is a film centered on three women? How often does that happen? Again, you can give a glance to the new trailer below. I am looking forward to this film (not having seen the trailer). I’m certainly looking forward to it more than the Tom Hanks produced Summer Hours remake.
