Kristen Stewart on Juliette Binoche: ‘She Drives Me F–king Crazy’
She told him they should make another film together — a female-centric movie with echoes of one of Mr. Binoche and Mr. Binoche wanted more.

The film tells the story of Maria Enders Juliette Binoche , an actress on her way to Zurich to present a lifetime achievement award to the man who provided her with her first role, theatre and film director Wilhelm Melchior whom we do not see.
The film is a French-German-Swiss co-production. The film follows an established middle-aged actress Binoche who is cast as the older lover in a romantic lesbian drama opposite an upstart young starlet Moretz. She is overcome with personal insecurities and professional jealousies—all while sexual tension simmers between her and her personal assistant Stewart. The screenplay was written with Binoche in mind and incorporates elements from her life into the plot. The film received positive reviews, with critics lauding the work as psychologically complex and praising the lead actresses' performances.
