Seberg (Benedict Andrews, 2019). Kristen Stewart as Jean Seberg, in a sincere film that focuses on the FBI’s vicious retaliation against her for her activism. Not sure why we spend so much time with the FBI agent (Jack O’Connell) affected by the harassment campaign, and not more time on the production of Paint Your Wagon (I kid on the latter point, but that shoot must have been quite a scene). And the title – why not The Seberg Case, or The File on Jean Seberg, or whatever? (fullreview 2/27)
