NYFF52 Day 14: 'Clouds of Sils Maria' Drift Inside Days and Nights of a 21st Century International Movie Star

HEADS UP: Picking up where we left off last year, but expanding a tad (OK, quite a bit but still pithy), we will limit comments about New York Film Festival films to no more than 200. And ... Lights. Camera. ACTION! ...

DO we really care what famous people talk about in the car on the way to accept an award for a mentor?

Many probably do if it's something salacious or embarrassing. But suppose it is not? Would we find it at all interesting. Many of us would not, despite the 24-hour gossip cycle that must be fed.

In “Clouds of Sils Maria,” these details are the movie as we look behind the scenes of Maria Enders' (Juliette Binoche) life.

The film has the second screening of its U.S. premiere run tonight at The 52nd New York Film Festival. JB will introduce it. (See video below).

In the hands of OlivierAssayas, the minutiae of Maria Enders' life is quite engaging, and not because she is an actress of international fame and acclaim.

Like a regular Joe, she is vulnerable, flawed, afraid and hopeful.
