      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Seberg's frustratingly superficial treatment of a fascinating true story does a disservice to its subject -- and Kristen Stewart's performance in the central role.

      Allan C Kristen Stewart is brilliantly cast as Jean Seberg, a real-life American actress who became an icon following performances in the 1960s French New Wave classic film BREATHLESS and later returning to Hollywood. Stewart really does look just as 1960s chic and as glamorous as the real-life Seberg, with her pixie cut and impeccable fashion, though that glamour is tempered with unexpected depth and tortured inner turmoil. However, while SEBURG shines when it comes to spot-on period details and color, it falls flat when it comes to the character's dramatic arc. It's an interesting true-life story of how the FBI targeted Seberg for her liberal political views, but the film fails to present the story in any sort of meaningful or insightful manner outside of "the man" shutting down dissent at the expense of the individual. Steward carries the film and is fantastic as Seberg, but that's really the only reason to watch the film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Rosana B A cada biografia feminina que assisto temas a mais absoluta certeza que nascer mulher é uma provação desde sempre, que biografia perfeita, sobre uma mulher maravilhosa, bem sucedida, porém infeliz, uma atriz linda e corajosa, Seberg, apoiava publicamente e financiava a causa dos Panteras Negras, e por isso condenada a "Lista Negra", grampos, perseguições e calúnias, triste, tipo o da Marilyn Monroe, vale a pena para quem curte biografia, eu a desconhecia… Kristen S2... Revoltate e Apaixonante… Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/14/22 Full Review Audience Member Kristen Stewart is excellent. For me, this is her best career performance! (Her performance in Spencer is unbelievable, but here it's even better! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A surprisingly disappointing movie. From the low budget production, to Benedict Andrews mushy directing style. Kristen Stewart is beautiful but totally miscasted, despite the best efforts of the costume, hair and makeup department, she seemed incapable to channel the À bout de Souffle's Jean Seberg with her very limited acting abilities. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review jaime h unwatchable awful... total shit show of absurd delusional filmmaking Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Outstanding performance by Kirsten Stewart.

      Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times Kristen Stewart does fierce work as the radicalized '60s actress, but the biopic too often wanders elsewhere. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 29, 2020 Full Review Josh Kupecki Austin Chronicle Seberg's life was quite interesting, but alas, this film is not, and that's a shame, because she was so much more than the girl in that iconic shirt wandering Paris with Jean-Paul Belmondo. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 27, 2020 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle "Seberg" provides a chance from Stewart to move from hubris and naïvete, to fear and paranoia, and finally to a kind of fragmentation. Rated: 3/4 Feb 24, 2020 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews Kristen Stewart and Jack O'Connell excel in Benedict Andrews' "love song" to Jean Seberg. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 30, 2023 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut As insightful as the shallow end of a swimming pool Rated: 2/5 Aug 28, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “Seberg” taps into the enigma that was Jean Seberg but doesn’t go much further than that.
