'Seberg' exclusive: Kristen Stewart, Anthony Mackie and Vince Vaughn star in a new clip

Kristen Stewart returns to cinemas this week in Seberg, inspired by the tragic true story of French New Wave star Jean Seberg.

The Charlie’s Angels star plays the American actress who appeared in a number of iconic films including Jean-Luc Godard's 1960 film Breathless (known in France as À bout de souffle).

The actress found herself embroiled in an FBI plot in the late 1960s due to her support of the civil rights movement.

Seberg comes to cinemas across the UK and Ireland this Friday.

Stories were leaked to the press that falsely suggested she’d conceived a child with a member of the Black Panthers, and she later successfully sued Newsweek for libel and defamation after she lost the baby.

We’re thrilled to share an exclusive clip from the film that shows Stewart’s Seberg at a party with her second husband Romain Gary (Yvan Attal), speaking with Anthony Mackie’s African-American activist Hakim Jamal, and his wife Dorothy, played by Joker’s Zazie Beetz.

Unbeknownst to them, the conversation is being listened to remotely by Vince Vaughn and Jack O’Connell’s FBI agents.

Seberg comes to cinemas across the UK and Ireland this Friday. Watch a trailer below.
