The Cannes Film Festival may have kicked off today, but it's a long wait still for Olivier Assayas' "Clouds Of Sils Maria." Even though it's slotted in Competition, the film won't be unspooling until the tail end of the festival, but if you're the impatient type (and we are) this clip will have to do.

Clouds Of Sils Maria

The Cannes Film Festival may have kicked off today, but it's a long wait still for Olivier Assayas' "Clouds Of Sils Maria." Even though it's slotted in Competition, the film won't be unspooling until the tail end of the festival, but if you're the impatient type (and we are) this clip will have to do.

It's brief, but it shows a lot of promise. The story follows a middle-aged actress (Binoche) who decides to star in a new version of the play that made her famous years ago, but this time taking the older leading lady part. But things take a turn when she meets her co-star, a younger actress (Chloe Grace Moretz) in the role that made her name, providing an uncanny reflection of herself. And in this clip, we see Binoche and her assistant (Stewart) chatting about the rising young actress in question, with the pair having very different opinions.

Meanwhile, a behind-the-scenes interview clip with Stewart has arrived. It has French audio over it, but you can make out what she's saying about her character. "Valentine is Maria Enders’ personnal assistant. The type of girl that I have definitely seen on many sets and in many environments. Sort of… Not the average assistant, but someone who is probably going somewhere, definitely has ambition and interest.She really, really admire Maria Enders, who is Juliette’s character. She would probably not work for another actress.She could assist a producer or work behind the scenes. In Maria she found someone who’s worth sucking a bit of life out of her.And I’ve seen that kind of relationship a couple times. And here it’s so perfectly put together. They’re having dynamics that I’ve definitely seen before.”

IFC Films will release this one in the U.S. but no date has been set yet. Watch below and stay tuned for the trailer likely coming next week.
