Featured Film:

Clouds of Sils Maria at the Seven Gables

Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart headline the latest from director Olivier Assayas, opening this week at the Seven Gables. Binoche plays a middle-aged actress reluctantly taking on the role of the older half of a poisonous relationship in a play she performed the younger role in in her own youth. Stewart is her steadfast assistant as the two discuss the play, acting in general and internet gossip in the Swiss Alps. Our Preview.
