Jean Seberg - 1 Star - Opens February 28, 2020

Jean Seberg left Iowa for France in the 1950s where she grew into a French New Wave darling because of her role in "Breathless."  This film biography concentrates on Seberg's return to Hollywood and affair with a member of the Black Panther party, which draws the attention of the FBI.  1 Star Rated "R" 
Kristen Stewart never manages to submerge into the role of the former film star.  Vince Vaughn add cringeworthy scenes as a driven FBI agent as does Steven Root as Seberg's agent.  Anthony Mackie manages his role as Seberg's revolutionary lover.  The script doesn't help any of them.
