Plot

Based on real events, it goes around the life of the American actress Jean Seberg, who changed the European cinema with her appearance in Godard's 'À bout de souffle' and who turned out in a cultural and aesthetic French New Wave icon. The film follows the famous actress at her return to the United States in 1968, just at the end of her French experience. At that time, the hippie dream, the fight for civil rights and the Vietnam War were the most important items in the American territory; and Seberg, who appears in the film represented as a free spirit, became the main target of Edgar Hoover, FBI's director, who considered her a social order threat because of her politician and romantic involvement with the Afroamerican civil rights activist Hakim Jamal. That was how the actress became the perfect victim of the terror and oppression campaign within the United States broke their society progress dreams. The biopic is directed by the Australian filmmaker and playwright Benedict Andrews ('Una') and starred by Kristen Stewart ('Twilight', 'Personal shopper') and goes since the Seberg's relation with the Black Panthers until her marriage problems, going through her relation with the fame and popularity, in which it stands out her frustration for no getting the best characters.
