Clouds of Sils Maria (2014) Feature Trailer
Feature trailer for Clouds of Sils Maria, starring Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloë Grace Moretz .
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 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.
Clouds of Sils Maria experienced more than a few hiccups when it came to casting. Mia Wasikowska was originally set to play Valentine but later dropped out, opening the door for the director's original top pick, Kristen Stewart. Daniel Brühl was also cast for a role early in pre-production, Klaus, only to later get replaced by Lars Eidinger thanks most in part to scheduling issues.
By the looks of the trailer, the film seems to have drama at every level; including what is hinted as a slight sexual attraction that Maria (Juliette Binoche) has for Valentine (Kristen Stewart). Though I typically avoid dramas such as this, there is enough story elements to peak my curiosity -- and perhaps a theatrical viewing.
