"Clouds of Sils Maria".

Not a movie for those looking for an action film. This is a slow moving drama about an older actress (Juilette Binoche) who is invited to play the older role of a couple she played as the younger girl, twenty years earlier.. She has an extremely capable personal assistant who helps her learn her lines for a remake of the play. The two have amazing chemistry and it earned Kristen Stewart the the honor of being the first American to win the French Cesar Award (for best supporting actress). As typical of French films, the movie leaves you hanging at the end, so don't expect a resolution. (Maybe that was a spoiler. Sorry)
