AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Seberg's frustratingly superficial treatment of a fascinating true story does a disservice to its subject -- and Kristen Stewart's performance in the central role.

Movie Info

Seberg is inspired by true events about the French New Wave darling and Breathless star, Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart), who in the late 1960s was targeted by the FBI because of her support of the civil rights movement and romantic involvement with Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), among others. In Benedict Andrews' noir-ish thriller, Seberg's life and career are destroyed by Hoover's overreaching surveillance and harassment in an effort to suppress and discredit Seberg's activism.

Critic Reviews for Seberg

All Critics (130) | Top Critics (38)

Kristen Stewart does fierce work as the radicalized '60s actress, but the biopic too often wanders elsewhere.

February 28, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Seberg's life was quite interesting, but alas, this film is not, and that's a shame, because she was so much more than the girl in that iconic shirt wandering Paris with Jean-Paul Belmondo.

February 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"Seberg" provides a chance from Stewart to move from hubris and naïvete, to fear and paranoia, and finally to a kind of fragmentation.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Everything about this is so superficial and the dialogue spells out absolutely everything.

February 21, 2020 | Full Review…

The chief problem with Seberg, as is often the case with biopics, is that the filmmakers never really find the character underlying the historical figure.

February 20, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Seberg is played by Kristen Stewart, and thanks to sterling work by the costume and make-up department she looks more like Seberg than you might have imagined...
