Kristen Stewart plays the personal assistant to star Juliette Binoche, whose career was launched at 18, when she was in a play. The play is being revived and she’s been cast in the older role. The film is almost exclusively this duo in general conversation and intellectual discussion about the play, as they travel from a retrospective event in Zurich to a remote house in the Alps (surrounded by gorgeous scenery). With any lesser actors, this could be a tedious bore. With these two, it’s always interesting, even though it’s still lots of talk. Director Olivier Assayas has tossed in some stylistic surprises and a few story elements that scream “foreign film.” Don’t expect any big moments. Just settle in for an intimate examination of ageism, fame and relationships.
