Jean Seberg Movie Doesn't Tell Her Full Story

Universal Productions France
Jean Seberg (1968)

Jean Seberg grew up in Marshalltown. She became an international movie star and lived most of her adult life in Paris. Seberg starred in 37 films and is possibly best remembered for her role in the movie “Breathless,” the forefront of the French New Wave movement. 

In this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with the filmmaking team behind the documentary “Movie Star: The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg,” to give us their thoughts of the new film “Seberg.” 

The new movie, starring Kristen Stewart as Seberg, is a fictionalized account of her involvement with the Black Panther Party and surveillance and harassment by the FBI.
