It's worth a watch, but don't expect to be blown away...
10 January 2020 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

A rather creative tale of the actress Jean Seberg and of her association with the Black Panther movement in America that ends up with her under FBI surveillance. Kristen Stewart does make an effort; but this whole film is just too linear; the actress - if she really was anything like this portrayal in real life, was a selfish and thoughtless individual who appears to care little for her husband or son. As such it's quite hard to sympathise with her even though at a political level; "Seberg" does make you realise (a bit like "The Report") just how little practical oversight the US Congress actually appears to have over the operations of Federal Agencies. Jack O'Connell isn't very convincing at the BFI guy with a conscience either.
