The movie opens April, 10th in the States.
Directed by Olivier Assayas (Carlos), Sils Maria was nominated for six César Awards—the French Academy Awards—and Stewart became the first American actress even to win a César for her supporting performance. Her ever-loyal character finds her professional and personal relationship to her boss complicated by her admiration for the young Hollywood starlet. In this scene from the film, she explains the magnitude of the ingenue’s stardom—which is amplified by the multitude of pre-teens who gobble up details of her personal life—to her unimpressed boss. The irony is pretty thick, coming from Stewart, and deftly delivered.
