Does it really have to be accurate ? This is a MOVIE !
Saw this tonight , thoroughly enjoyed it , an entertaining couple of hours . Stewart looked lovely , a true beauty , well acted , great detail in the fashions and good soundtrack . Cinematography was excellent . Wonderful images. Whether it tells the true story of Jean Seberg I'm not totally sure. But nowadays if you want to see an accurate account of stuff like this then watch a documentary or try wiki.
