This thoughtful English-language drama from French director Olivier Assayas features Juliette Binoche as Maria, an international star who faces a dilemma when asked to perform in the piece that had made her famous two decades ago, but now as the older woman rather than the ingénue. Filmed on spectacular locations, including the Swiss town of the title, the story becomes a resonant meditation on cinema, the acting profession, and a woman’s identity, through extensive conversations between Maria and her American assistant Val (Kristen Stewart, who recently won a French César for this performance), and Maria’s encounter with the young star (Chloë Grace Moretz) who’ll play the role once identified with her. Writer/Director: Olivier Assayas. (France/Germany/Switzerland 2014) 123 min.
