Daphne Guinness as Jean Seberg

Picture: The Imagist
The famous fashionista/fashion icon Daphne Guinness is currently doing a movie about the mysterious death of Jean Seberg. Seberg who you might foremost remember from the classic Jean-Luc Godard movie Breathless.
Recently I read an article from 1979 in Time magazine which makes it clear that the FBI wasn't too happy about Seberg's support for the Black Panther movement. And they tried to start a rumor about her having an affair with Martin Luther King Jr.
Jean Seberg was missing for eleven days until found dead in the backseat of her car and the police states that she took an overdose and left a very short suicide note. After reading this I'm very curious to see this movie which Daphne is both starring in and producing.
