Inspired by real events in the life of French New Wave icon Jean Seberg. In the late 1960s, Hoover's FBI targeted her because of her political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal.
Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Inspired by real events in the life of Breathless (1960) star and French New Wave icon Jean Seberg, who in the late 1960s was targeted by Hoover's FBI, because of her political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal.
This has to be one of the poorest biopic that I have seen.Having read the biography Played Out I was hoping for a book that would reflect the tragic life of Jean Seberg.Alas no.What we get is a film which concentrates on harassment by the GNU and almost excludes Seberg.
