In the late Sixties, Seberg was best known for starring as the American love interest in French New Wave films, most famously in Breathless. But she became a target of the FBI thanks to her support of the Black Panther Party and her affair with Hakim Jamal. Seberg tells her story through the lens of a historical thriller, following her struggle to remain afloat in her career as COINTELPRO works to take her down.
Seberg is directed by Benedict Andrews, from a script by Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel. Alongside Stewart, the film stars Jack O’Connell, Margaret Qualley, Zazie Beetz, Vince Vaughn and Anthony Mackie. A release date for the film hasn’t been announced yet, but the trailer teases that it will be “coming soon” to select theaters.
