An intriguing Chinese box of a movie, this slightly too-clever drama unpicks the layers of identity that are concealed behind the image of a celebrity. It's so knowing that it can't help but find revelatory meaning here and there, and the performances are raw and fascinating. There's also spectacular scenery and some darkly swelling emotions. But the themes are pushed a bit too hard, and the plot is enigmatic and oddly unresolved.
At the centre is Maria (Juliette Binoche), a famous actress who is aware that as she ages she's entering a new phase in her career. She's headed with her personal assistant Val (Kristen Steward) to a special event in Sils-Maria, Switzerland, to honour Wilhelm, the director who made Maria a star. But Wilhelm dies just before they arrive, so the event turns into a memorial instead. At the funeral, theatre director Klaus (Lars Eidinger) approaches Maria about starring in a new version of Wilhelm's iconic play Maloja Snake, which refers to an unusual cloud formation in this Alpine region. But this time Maria would play the older woman, while rising-star Jo-Ann (Chloe Grace Moretz) takes the ingenue role that sparked Maria's career. While Jo-Ann catches headlines for her bad-girl antics, Maria asks Val to help her get a grip on the alien older character she will be playing.
The story spirals out from here with swirling angles of meaning, as the play within the film becomes entangled with the contrasting public and private lives of the celebrities. Thankfully, even though everything is very pointed, the actors deliver remarkably off-handed performances that are very easy to identify with, revealing their characters' private thoughts and insecurities. There is of course also a further meta-level to all of this, as Jo-Ann's paparazzi-baiting lifestyle echoes experiences Stewart herself has had.

The ‘Twilight’ star has opened up about sexism in Hollywood, as well as big screen sex scenes.
Kristen Stewart has spoken out against the sexism which still exists in Hollywood, branding it “disgustingly sexist.” The actress made the comments during an interview with Britain’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine, where she also spoke about filming 'uncomfortable' sex scenes.
Stewart is best known for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise.
“Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard,” Stewart told the mag. “Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy."
Woody Allen has signed up Kristen Stewart for his new movie.
Woody Allen has cast Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg in his latest movie. As usual with Allen's projects at this stage, the film is untitled and there are no details, though it's being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson.
Kristen Stewart will star in Woody Allen's latest movie, alongside Bruce Willis and Jesse Eisenberg
It's an eye-striking and typically varied and unusual cast and Allen remains one of the few directors who signs up talent without showing them a script. Everybody wants to work with Allen and the general rule of thumb is: if you're asked, you take the job. Cate Blanchet won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2014 after starring in Allen's Blue Jasmine.

The 24-year-old actress recently opened up about being confident with who she is as a person.
Kristen Stewart's personal and professional life has been like a roller coaster for the last several years, but the notoriously shy actress has managed to survive these rough times seemingly without effecting her career, and this may be because she is confident with who she is.
Stewart says she is an "intense weirdo"
During a new interview with CR Fashion Book, the 'Twilight' star covered an array of personal topics including her own opinions of herself and what she is attracted to.

The actress took home France’s version of the Academy Award in Paris on Friday.
Kristen Stewart looked visually shocked on Friday, as she was named best supporting actress at France’s César Awards, making history in the process. The actress took home France’s version of the Oscar for her role in drama Clouds of Sils Maria, in which she starred opposite Juliette Binoche.
Forget Twilight, Kristen Stewart has made acting history.
The actress appeared stunned when her name was read as the winner and she began her acceptance speech telling the audience, “OK here we go, I can’t even move by hands.” Stewart then proceeded to give her thank-yous in French before continuing in English.
After working "for a solid two years," the 24-year-old actress is ready to step away from Hollywood to pursue her other hobbies and relax.
Kristen Stewart's personal and professional life has been like a roller coaster for the last several years, and now the 24-year-old actress is ready to take a well-deserved break from the movie business.
Stewart wants to take a break from Hollywood
During an appearance on Monday's (Jan 26th) 'Live! With Kelly and Michael,' Stewart revealed that after wrapping up filming for 'Still Alice,' she has just been relaxing and enjoying pursuing her other hobbies.

The 24-year-old actress recently revealed that she always wants to keep surprising people with the roles she takes on, for example a role in a superhero flick.
Kristen Stewart as already dominated the fantasy film genre when she starred as Bella Swan in the popular 'The Twilight Saga' film series, but the 24-year-old actress also has a fantasy of her own, and that is to play a superhero.
Stewart wants to star in a superhero flick
While speaking with Yahoo Movies to promote her new movie, the Oscar-nominated drama 'Still Alice,' Stewart revealed that she always wants to keep surprising people with the roles she takes on, and a Marvel movie would definitely achieve that.

For a film about early onset Alzheimer's, this is a remarkably wry, honest and even hopeful drama, anchored by another staggeringly sensitive performance by Julianne Moore. Writing-directing team Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are known for their observant depictions of human interaction (see Quinceañera), and they fill the screen with sharp dialogue and earthy emotions that make this much more than another movie about a disease. Instead, it's about how people can transcend what life throws at them, even if it knocks them down.
Moore stars as Alice, a New York linguistics professor who has just turned 50 when she starts noticing that she's forgetting words and getting lost. Her doctor gives her the tough diagnosis, and she uses her dry wit and sharp intellect to face the future with her steady husband John (Alec Baldwin) and their three grown children: married and pregnant Anna (Kate Bosworth), aspiring actress Lydia (Kristen Stewart) and free-spirit Tom (Hunter Parrish). The hardest thing to learn is that the disease is familial, and that she has passed it to at least one of her children. So while she can, Alice makes a contingency plan for the future as she watches her family members each react in a different way.
No, this isn't a light and breezy movie. But the filmmakers balance the moments of gut-wrenching emotion with smart humour ("Sorry, I forgot - I have Alzheimer's!") and bracing honesty ("I wish I had cancer!"). Moore is uncannily raw in the role, subtly revealing Alice's transformation in ways we barely notice until we're reminded what she used to be like. Even more powerful is her own awareness of what's happening. Opposite her, Baldwin has terrific camaraderie and an unexpected warmth, while both Bosworth and Stewart get a chance to dig much deeper as actors than they usually do. And what makes the film special is the way Alice's interaction with each character is uniquely individualistic.

FKA Twigs has described her relationship with Robert Pattinson as "worth it" in the face of negative attention from some users of social media.
FKA Twigs at the Mercury Prize Awards in London in September 2014.
At the 52nd New York Film Festival, the stars of 'Clouds Of Sils Maria' were photographed on the red carpet ahead of the film's screening. Amongst these was Kristen Stewart who gave an interview during the press event.
Lionsgate is pulling a Harry Potter with its Twilight spinoffs, but they have a good idea behind it.
The Twilight Saga is set to return with five short films this year. No, no, no, don’t click away just yet, we promise this will be worth it. The films, set to premiere on Facebook, will be a collaborative project between Lionsgate and Facebook, giving five aspiring female filmmakers the chance to create the films.
Kristen Stewart will be among the panelists, charged with selecting the five best filmmkers.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the five creators will be selected by a panel, which includes the films' star Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, producer Cathy Schulman and Frozen co-director Jennifer Lee – so all in all, a group of cool women, who know a lot about film.
Upon first arrival at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, Private Amy Cole (Kristen Stewart) is given a set of strict instructions: refer to the people in cells as detainees, not prisoners; do not let the detainees know anything about you or get inside your head; and understand that they are in a war zone. Unfortunately, these rules start to become stronger enforcers of the idea that 'black and white' state of affairs are entirely fabricated. As Cole steadily befriends a man named Ali (Peyman Moaadi) who is kept confined in one of the cells, she begins to realise that outlines of good and bad are totally askew in this weird and alien place.

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart has spoken out about why she doesn't often crack a grin photos.
The star of films including On the Road and Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart is often accused of being moody in the mainstream media because of her trademark pout. However, speaking to Elle US, Stewart set the record straight about her lack of smiles in public photographs.
This is the Kristen Stewart look we're most familiar with
"Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo - not that I ever would - that's exactly what people would be desecrating me for," she told the magazine. "They'd be like, 'Now you're going to give it up, now you're a sellout.' Like, Okay. What do you want? What would you like?"

Frank Darabont will helm the 'Snow White and the Huntsman' sequel, though Kristen Stewart will not return.
Frank Darabont, the creator of The Walking Dead, is in early talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2 for Universal Pictures and Roth Films though the movie will focus on Chris Hemsworth and not Kristen Stewart, who will make a cameo at the very most.
According to The Wrap, Darabont has not received an official offer yet but is expected to agree as soon as one materializes. It is believed he beat out Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andy Muschietti (Mama) for the gig.

"Clouds Of Sils Maria" is out later this year.
If you follow Kristen Stewart’s career with the irrational passion that this writer does, you’ll no doubt have already seen the trailer for her new movie (well, technically, Juliette Binoche’s new movie) Clouds of Sils Maria. And you will have cheered.
Look at our girl, moving past the unfortunate cloud of Twilight fame to act in a serious, psychological film. We couldn’t be more proud. If you’re not quite as obsessive and have not seen the trailer just yet, you can check out out below.
Watch the trailer for The Hills of Sils Maria below.
Taylor Swift has more celebrity BFFs than most of us have pairs of underwear. But who does she count among her celeb posse?
Taylor Swift is like the girl at high school who knows absolutely everybody, but you're not quite sure how. She seems to move just as easily from friendship group to friendship group just as quickly as it takes for her to say, “Hey girlfriend!” But who does Taylor Swift count among her many celebrity BFFs?
Taylor has more celebrity BFFs than she has American Music awards!
Taylor and Selena Gomez are always snapped together at various awards ceremonies. The pair originally met backstage at a Jonas Brothers’ concert and have became fast friends. “So much about our lives have changed over the last couple of years, but our friendship has stayed the same”, Taylor has said. Although she’s not the best option to give boyfriend advice, perhaps Taylor can offer Selena some wise words when it comes to her beau, Justin Bieber.

Scarlett Johansson finds her 'tacky' nickname 'insulting'. These other celebrities aren't so bothered about their portmanteau names.
These days it seems as though fame is cemented when the world refers to you by your very own portmanteau. Over the past few years it’s become a way of referring to our favourite celebs, because in the texting generation don’t nobody gots time to say their full names. Think J-Lo, K-Stew, J-Law, ScarJo, the list goes on. Except ScarJo wants her name taken off the list, because, well, she’s apparently above all that. Apparently starring in a Marvel movie franchise qualifies you as a serious actress, Meryl Streep style. Or MezStree as we like to call her. And she freaking loves it.
Scarlett Johansson thinks portmanteaus are 'tacky'
Scarlett Johansson, or ScarJo as we like to call her (and which is how she shall forever forth be referred) explained to Glamour magazine, “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant…There’s something insulting about it.” Well, that's certainly very diplomatic and won't potentially insult anybody. Nice work, ScarJo! ScarJo ScarJo ScarJo.
There's nothing we love more than finding out when celebrities are best friends, some of them aren't a secret, others will blow you away. We bet you never knew about Bette Midler and 50 Cent's budding best friendship...
Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met! The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.
Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”. Mutual appreciation society, or what? We love it! That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

Woodley is only the latest in a string of celebrities to endorse the empowerment cause.
Like a number of her fellow next gen Hollywood actresses, The Descendants star Shailene Woodley is conscious of the messages she sends to young people and young women in particular. Woodley is on the verge of superstardom, with teen novel adaptations Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars both due later this year. And since she’s all about empowerment for young women, you can bet that she has an opinion on other members of the genre.
Woodley thinks that movies should send a strong message of empowerment.
Speaking for TIME, Woodley took issue with one infamous piece of teen fiction in particular – Stephanie Meyer’s infamous Twilight books. Bella isn’t exactly known as the most looked-up to female protagonist and Woodley explains why: “Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”
Twilight alternate cast, with Jennifer Lawrence and Vanessa Hudgens seems pretty strong to us.
Welcome to the latest instalment in our ‘Alternate Movie Cast’ series! Last time we invited you to think about what the Harry Potter films would have been like if other actors who had auditioned for the roles had won them instead of the cast that we’ve come to know and love. This time, we’re taking a look at actors and actresses who auditioned for roles in the movie adaptions of Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series. Obviously the coveted roles of Edward and Bella went to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and, as we all know, the dramatic romance that ensued offscreen between R-Pattz and K-Stew was almost as intense as the one onscreen. We wouldn’t have had it any other way, but imagine if these other celebs had won out instead of the tumultuous indie pair.
Jennifer Lawrence was upset she missed out on the role of Bella Swan
Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart are often compared to one another as both are young Hollywood actresses around the same age. However, did you know that J-Law is a huge Twilight fan and did in fact audition for the role of Bella Swan? Jen admitted “I love the ‘Twilight’ books. I’m not even ashamed to say it, they are like methamphetamine to me. So when I heard Kristen Stewart say, “I only read the first one”, I was like, “Oh man,” because she wasn’t a huge fan of the books”. We’re sure that Twi-hard Jennifer was pretty upset at the time, but she’s since gone on to star as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games as well as winning an Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. We think she’s probably recovered from the blow of losing out on the role of Bella.

Kristen Stewart's poem to Robert Pattinson is published in Marie Claire magazine.
It’s no secret that Kristen Stewart is often portrated as an angsty soul who bears the weight of the world on her shoulders, but we weren't expecting the 23-year-old to start writing deep poetry!
Kristen Stewart's poem was revealed in Marie Claire
We shouldn’t be too hard on her for this, she does have her fair share of problems. The whole cheating scandal was picked up by the world's media and it wasn't very fun for anyone involved.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have got big but perhaps very different years ahead. Next month sees the release of Dior Homme Eau for Men - a new fragrance that the French fashion giant plans to shift with the help of the 27-year-old British star. Since its arrival on YouTube, the black-and-white commercial for the fragrance starring Pattinson has racked up 15 million views.
Robert Pattinson is the new face of Dior.
"I like trying to do ambitious things," Pattinson tells the Wall Street Journal of the collaboration, "That's what got me really enthusiastic about the campaign, that [Dior] wasn't shying away from anything."
The 23-year-old actress is making a big career change.
Kristen Stewart might be a terrible bowler, but the woman knows how to make a comeback. After taking a break in 2013, following the success of the Twilight saga, Stewart is back on the Guantanamo Bay-set drama Camp X-Ray, currently playing at Sundance Film Festival. Camp X-Ray has received mixed reviews, but Stewart’s performance as a guard at Gitmo seems to be almost universally liked. It’s a bit of a surprise, since her role as Bella Swan became a universal punch line in bad movie jokes during the Twilight years. Maybe that was why Stewart was so nervous to take on the new and radically different role this time around.
Stewart's break in 2013 meant that audiences could get some distance from her stint as Bella Swan.
"I was so nervous when I first started working and preparing because I didn't think that people would believe me or think that I looked tough in a uniform," she said for MTV News at Sundance "that I could do that job, that I could wrangle detainees that are massive and scary."
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have given up ownership of the Los Feliz mansion.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have given the signal that their days of lovin' are probably in the past after the former couple's LA lovenest was sold to The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons for $6.37 million, according to the LA Times.
Robert Pattinson Has Sold The LA Home He Shared With Kristen Stewart.
It seems as though the former Twilight co-stars' love was too hot to handle, as the 1.5 acre Spanish colonial dreamhouse failed to attract a buyer at the original asking price of $6.75 million when it was first listed in October. The immaculate 1922 hacienda boasts three bedrooms and three-and-a-half-bathrooms as well as a grand courtyard, palm trees, a swimming pool, a waterfall and fountains.
Kristen Stewart's role as US guard 'Amy Cole' in Peter Sattler's 'Camp X-Ray' is a far-cry away form her days as wannabe vampire 'Bella' in the film franchise 'Twilight', but the actress is triumphantly praised for the portrayal.
Kristen Stewart needn't be worried of being typecast following her role as 'Bella' in the teen vampire romance film-franchise 'Twilight'. The 23 year-old has a full transformation, like her fans have never seen her before, as she stars in the gripping drama 'Camp X-Ray'.
Kristen Stewart as US guard 'Amy Cole'
Peter Sattler wrote and directed the film, which also stars Peyman Moaadi, John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison and Joseph Julian Soria, and it is set on the temporary detention facility Camp X-Ray on Guantanamo Bay.
The Guantanamo Bay-set drama is the talk of Sundance, but Stewart has admitted that she was worried it could be a career-ruiner
Kristen Stewart will look to cast off the shackles of her Twilight past once more in the new film Camp X Ray. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this week and has so far received relatively positive reviews (it currently holds an 8.1 rating on IMdb), yet Kristen has admitted that it is a film that she thought may bomb thanks to her unconvincing performance.
Kristen's performance has been singled out for praise by some critics
The actress spoke to MTV News this week about her concerns about the film, concerns that she was not a worthy enough actress to play the conflicted young soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay who goes on to befriend an inmate of eight years. The young actress has admitted that during film and before the film premiered at the festival this week that she was worried people would struggle to buy into her character and that they were likely to write her off straight away.

It's that time again - a week of innovative, independent films. Oh, goody!
With the Twilight franchise firmly behind her, Kristen Stewart has moved on to bigger and better things – namely the Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray, which debuted during the first day of the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. Other titles from Friday include “Whiplash,” the surprise hit starring Miles Teller and Aaron Paul’s first post-Breaking Bad project, Hellion.
Aaron Paul stars in the coming of age drama Hellion.
The film is so far receiving moderate reviews – according to The Huffington Post, there are some things that work and some that don’t and Stewart’s performance is simply described as “fine”. Stewart plays Amy Cole – a private stationed at Guantanamo, whose job it is to make sure the detainees stay alive. According to the Huff Post review, the film carries a strong message, but the execution makes it slightly boring and too contained within its setting. Still, it’s probably a good thing that Kristen Stewart has moved so far away from the teen movie genre. Maybe.
Are the 'Twilight' co-stars still sweet on each other?
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are rumoured to be rekindling their romance after their difficult May split. The former Twilight co-stars reportedly talk all the time via Skype and text despite being thousands of miles away from each other.
Rob & Kristen's Romance Had An Intoxicating Effect.
"Kristen and Rob have been keeping in touch by Skyping," a friend of Kristen's told Hollywood Life. "They make sure to Skype at least once a week and text in between, and send each other funny photos. Being away from each other has actually made them closer."
Several films due to be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival are generating a hefty amount of conversation
The Sundance Film Festival is the place to be for young, aspiring filmmakers hoping to crack into the hotly-contested business of the movies. By the end of the film festival, which this year runs from 16-26 January, there are always a selection of film titles that are revived for the following awards season, and this year people are so eager for the celluloid showcase that a number of early contenders for festival glory have been marked before their debut release.
The dark God's Pocket stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan
In thirty years the film has discovered some of the most promising filmmakers out there and continues to deliver, from Roland Joffé’s The Killing Fields in the festival's opening year (1985) to last year's most notable success; Fruitvale Station, the debut feature length from Ryan Coogler. With another 120 films to get through this year it seems more than likely that at least one of the releases will be leaving Park City, Utah, with more than a few skiing lessons and a commemorative t-shirt.
Take a look at Sundance 2014 - the pick of the bunch.
Sundance 2014 promises to be as varied as ever, with a healthy mix of world cinema, documentary film and Hollywood output. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the festival will run from January 16-26 and, by the time it closes its doors, will have showcased 117 feature-length projects, 16 of which are world premieres.
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan in God's Pocket
"This year's lineup is reflective of film-makers wanting to tell new stories, and we're seeing a broader range of characters and ages," Trevor Groth, the director of programming, told the Hollywood Reporter. "A lot of times, the typical Sundance film-maker has a younger perspective and tells stories of what they know. But this year we're seeing more stories about people who are older."
