Binoche plays Maria Enders, a successful but aging actress; Stewart plays Val, her long-time assistant confidant and possibly lover!
Their lives are moving forward on an even keel until Jo-Ann Ellis, played by Chloe Grace Moretz, enters the picture.
She’s an up and coming actress who in many ways reminds Maria of herself when she was young. The two begin to grow closer after Jo-Ann lands a part in a revival that made Maria famous years ago.
Maria is asked to be in the play as well, but as Helena an older woman who is driven to suicide by an alluring young girl played by Jo-Ann.
They depart for Sils Maria a small town in the Swiss Alps to rehearse. Jo-Ann is a Hollywood starlet with a wild side, and Maria sees in her an unsettling reflection of herself.
Val becomes jealous and appears willing to do anything to make sure she doesn’t lose Maria, including seducing her.
The movie, directed by Olivier Assayas, was previewed at the Cannes International Film Festival.
