CLEVELAND, Ohio – Getting older is hard for everyone – seeing the passage of time, reflecting on what will never be again.
But it’s arguably harder for female actresses than anyone else. These women, valued for their looks and youth, can literally see the passage of time magnified thousands of times on the silver screen, lamented in magazines and gossip pages. Their worth goes down as the years pass.
Such is the topic of French director Olivier Assayas’ “Clouds of Sils Maria.” But this drama starring lovely 51-year-old Juliette Binoche as restless movie star Maria Enders is far more than a look at graying celebrity. It’s a meditation on time and age, but also the nature of reality
