The night went on with the film Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloë Grace Moretz directed by Olivier Assayas.
Maria Enders ( Juliette Binoche) is a successful actress and has a loyal personal assistant called Valentine (Kristen Steward) but her world goes upside down when a much younger actress (C.G. Moretz) is called to interpret a role in a new movie, the exact same role which made Enders famous.
Haunted by ghosts from the past she withdraws herself along with her assistant to the remote Swiss village of Sils Maria.

Nevertheless I had another amazing night in Piazza Grande at the Locarno Film Festival and I enjoyed every minute of it! From walking through the red carpet, to watch the film in this amazing Piazza! To see Juliette Binoche on stage was a real treat as she is a true icon.
After the movie we headed to the Moët & Chandon Party in Ascona. You will find all about it on a separate post!
