Kristen Stewart

Actress

Deauville Talent Award 2019 of the 45th Festival of American Cinema

She is not yet thirty years old but already twenty years of career behind her. His unpredictable and stimulating journey, from the world famous franchise to the most demanding auteur cinema, traces a unique path in contemporary American cinema. We are pleased to present a Deauville Talent Award to Kristen Stewart.

Noticed from her eleven years in the role of the daughter of Jodie Foster in Panic Room by David Fincher (2002), then in Into the Wild by Sean Penn (2007), Kristen Stewart becomes a planetary star thanks to the saga Twilight. Between the filming of the franchise components, she prepares in dotted lines the turning point that her career will then take, towards more independence and risk. Frenchman Olivier Assayas (President of the Jury in Deauville in 2011) makes it a new face of auteur cinema with Sils Maria (2014), who offered him the only Cesar awarded to an American actress to date, that of Best Supporting Actress in 2015. The filmmaker then entrusted him with the title role of the supernatural thriller Personal shopper (2016).

Symbol of a young generation asserting its identity beyond diktats, its choices of actresses reflect a desire to question society and in particular representations of the feminine. This year, we will see it in Charlie's Angels, new adaptation of the cult series of the 1980s produced this time by a woman, Elizabeth Banks. But she will also carry two films inspired by real facts: JT Leroy Justin Kelly, the transgender alias of a woman writer embodied by Laura Dern, and Seberg by Benedict Andrews, on a stormy episode in the life of actress Jean Seberg, faced with intimidation by the FBI for its support for the Black Panther party.

Having accompanied his career through the presentation of films The Yellow Handkerchief (2008) The Runaways (2010) Welcome to the Rileys (2010) The Guard (2014) et Some women by Kelly Reichardt (2016), the Deauville Festival is pleased to welcome one of the most brilliant actresses of her generation. More than ever at the crossroads of all American cinemas, Kristen Stewart could not offer a more radiant face to this Deauville Talent Award 2019.

Evening tribute on the occasion of the 45th edition of the Deauville American Festival in his presence on Friday September 13, followed by the French premiere of Seberg by Benedict Andrews.
