Inspired by true events, SEBERG tells the story of À BOUT DE SOUFFLE (Breathless) star and darling of the French New Wave, Jean Seberg, who in the late 1960s was targeted by the illegal FBI surveillance program COINTELPRO (COunter INTELligence PROgram), a pet project of J. Edgar Hoover, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations. Seberg’s political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie) made her a target of the FBI’s ruthless attempts to disrupt, discredit and expose the Black Power movement.
An ambitious young FBI agent, Jack Solomon (Jack O’Connell), is assigned to surveil her, only to find his fate dangerously interwoven with her own. Under the ruthless gaze of the FBI, the threads of Jean’s life come apart. Like her character in ST. JOAN (her acting debut), whom she played for Otto Preminger, Jean passes through the fire. Surviving breakdown and loss, she transforms volatility into hard-won grace. Kristen Stewart turns in a bravura performance that captures the spirit of a martyred icon.
