LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Kristen Stewart To Star In Against All Enemies

Jean Seberg might be best known for her appearances in movies such as Breathless and for being the American face of the French New Wave movement. But her story stretches beyond her work, wrapped in politics, activism and tragedy, and now Kristen Stewart is on to play the iconic figure in a new film called Against All Enemies. Benedict Andrews is in the director's chair for the film, which features a script from Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. Jack O'Connell, Anthony Mackie, Margaret Qualley and Colm Meaney are all in the ensemble for the film, which will follow what happened when Seberg was targeted for surveillance because of her political and romantic entanglement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal ( Mackie) . With the FBI looking to expose and discredit the Black Power movement, an ambitious young agent (O'Connell) is assigned to track her. Seberg's life was rocked by manufactured scandal and she died aged 40 in 1979. Discuss this with fellow SJF fans
