Universal Pictures has released a brand new trailer, poster and image set for SEBERG, out in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 10 January 2020.
Directed by Benedict Andrews, from a screenplay by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, the film stars Kristen Stewart, Jack O’Connell, Vince Vaughn, Anthony Mackie, Zazie Beetz, and Margaret Qualley.
SEBERG had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and screened at this year’s 63rd BFI London Film Festival.
Inspired by real events, SEBERG focuses on 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 his second feature film, director Benedict Andrews’ (Una) noir-ish thriller, Seberg’s life and career are destroyed by J Edgar Hoover’s FBI overreaching surveillance and harassment in an effort to suppress and discredit Seberg’s activism.
