Cupid's Pulse Article: Movie Review: SebergCupid's Pulse Article: Movie Review: Seberg

By Hope Ankney

Seberg is a film that will have everyone sitting on the edge of their seats. Following the story of Jean Seberg (as played by Kristen Stewart), the movie takes place in the late 1960s, as the American actress grows bored of acting and takes interest in activism and politics of the era. While on a flight, Seberg locks eyes with a handsome stranger, Hakim Jamal, who turns out to be an outgoing, yet controversial, leader of The Black Panthers Movement. Wanting to “make a difference,” she finds herself swept up in a romance with Jamal while she dives further and further into the movement of the Panthers. It isn’t long, though, until a young FBI agent named Jack Solomon falls for Seberg, making everything a little bit more difficult.

Seberg is a political thriller that will have you feeling a mix of emotions by the film’s end! Check out our movie review.

Cupid’s Advice:

Even though Seberg is a political thriller, there is a subplot that revolves around lovesick FBI agent Solomon chasing after Jean even though she doesn’t seem to be reciprocating the same smitten feelings. If you’re falling for someone, and you don’t know if they’re feeling the same way, don’t worry. Cupid has some relationship advice to figure out if someone is into you or not:

1. Extended eye contact: If you and your crush are consistently exchanging glances at one another, this could be a sign that they’re interested in you. It’s even more obvious if these glances include smiles, bashfulness, or rosy cheeks!

2. Casual touches: innocent touching happens all the time between two people. But, it becomes a little less casual when these touches turn into gentle hands on the shoulder or brushing of hands. Chances are, if someone is going out of their way to come in contact with you, they’re at least a little bit into you.

3. Constant laughter: A sure sign that someone is flirting is when everything you say is taken like a comedy routine. People who like you are going to think you are the funniest person on the planet, and going out of their way to genuinely laugh at something you said is a way for them to show interest.
