Clouds of Sils Maria Opens Today

From our friends at IFC Films...

CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, the drama from IFC Films for which actress Kristen Stewart won the Cesar Award for best supporting actress, opens in Washington, DC today, April 17, at Landmark Bethesda Row. Also starring Juliette Binoche and ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, this film is a bewitching tale of rivalry, coming to terms with age and the blurred lines of relationships.

Synopsis: At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloƫ Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.
