More ‘Velvet Goldmine’ than ‘Almost Famous’, Bercot’s treatise on fandom posits the star as a kind of vampire: she can’t enter the home uninvited, but once there can draw the life from you. As megastar Lauren, Seigner (who also sings) is a plausibly charismatic mix of ego and neurosis, while de Besco is outstanding as teenager Lucie, who follows Lauren to Paris after she pays a surreal visit to her home as part off a TV show. The misjudged self-licensing behaviour of both adolescence and celebrity is the basis for the obsessive behaviour that follows.
