Overall, Seberg is a watchable soufflé that succeeds more as a theatrical drama than a biopic. It won't leave you breathless, but it is kept afloat by its colourful, sparkly sense of style and Kristen Stewart's natural, captivating performance.
It may be small solace that Seberg finally tells Jean's tragic story, but it's never too late to be reminded of the insidious power of gossip - and how it can swallow reputations, causes, and even human lives, whole.
The filmmakers didn't think [Jean] Seberg was fascinating enough to show a more well-rounded view of her life, and instead they gave a lot of screen time to show the personal life of a fictional FBI agent.
Seberg drops the ball, approaching the actress's story and harassment at the hands of the government with surprising cowardice, taking an unfounded "both sides" stance in portraying the FBI investigation.
[Anthony] Mackie is at times commanding, [Kristin] Stewart looks the part with the blonde pixie cute, but she and director Benedict Andrews and the writers feel like they are chasing a myth, not a soul.
