Maria (Binoche) is a middle-aged starlet with a younger assistant, Val (Stewart). When Maria is approached about doing the play that made her famous, this time as the older woman, Val urges her to accept. They start preparing for the role, going over the script and playing games to help Maria get familiar with the character. The ladies are soon joined by Jo-Ann Ellis (Moretz), an American actress and star of cheesy sci-fi films who is taking Maria's old part. Ellis is much younger, maybe even prettier, but her skills are nothing compared to Maria's.
Part It's All About Eve, part Being Julia, wholly engrossing, Binoche, Stewart, and Moretz turn in stellar performances, winning Stewart a Cesar, which no American actress had previously won.
