Many people have said she's in contention for Best Actress:
Also, Kristen Stewart is amazing in an incredibly tricky role. The temptation to do more than she does (fatal) must've been great. Brava.— Mike D'Angelo (@gemko) May 23, 2014
Really glad I caught CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, not least because Kristen Stewart gives her best performance ever in it. Loved her.— Tim Robey (@trim_obey) May 23, 2014
Clouds of Sil Maria: there's this great young actress in it. Kristen Stewart. Keep an eye out for her, she's gonna be big. #Cannes2014— THE STUDIO EXEC (@studioexec1) May 23, 2014
As w/Channing Tatum in Foxcatcher, Kristen Stewart will have haters rethinking things after seeing Sils Maria. She is superb. #Cannes2014— Jon Frosch (@jonfrosch_f24) May 23, 2014
SILS MARIA paradox: as colorless filmsplainer, KStew has by far the worst role. And yet gives the best, most alive performance. Good job!— Ben Croll (@becroll) May 23, 2014
The fashion house has made its debut financing films with “Clouds of Sils Maria,” starring Juliette Binoche, Chloë Grace Moretz and Kristen Stewart, who can be seen in advertisements for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection.
Bruno Pavlovsky, president of fashion at Chanel, says the house not only supplied the actresses with clothes, jewelry, accessories and makeup, but also provided the budget allowing Assayas to fulfill his dream of shooting the movie on 35-mm film instead of digitally.
“Chanel has always had privileged relationships with a number of artists and these relationships, beyond providing them with the means to carry out their projects, have often resulted in direct patronage of these artists. I think the project with Olivier Assayas is a perfect example of that,” he said.
Assayas first met Chanel’s couturier Karl Lagerfeld through actor Édgar Ramírez, who played the title role in his mini-series “Carlos the Jackal.” Lagerfeld subsequently photographed the film director for his book “The Little Black Jacket,” and Assayas and Stewart attended the brand’s fall 2013 couture show.
The movie also features a cameo by Chanel brand ambassador Caroline de Maigret, who plays a PR for the fashion house.
Go Kristen! After all these years, finally getting the recognition she deserves.
