Please note, the screening of Seberg advertised in our printed guide on Tuesday 3 March at 6pm is now cancelled and will be replaced by Parasite at 5.45pm. This is due to popular demand for Parasite, which recently won the Oscar for Best Film.
Returning to the US as Europe’s ‘It’ girl after her breakout success in Godard’s Breathless – Seberg becomes a target of J Edgar Hoover’s FBI when she becomes romantically involved with Black Panther Hakim Jamal and flaunts her disregard for America’s misogynistic and racist institutions. Silkily photographed by Mudbound cinematographer Rachel Morrison, this stylish drama packs a punch. Stewart dazzles as the starlet who was all-but-destroyed by an archly conservative FBI, then a nefarious organisation with virtually unchecked power, and dismayed as she unwittingly took others down with her.
