Jeanne Moreau and the new Femme Fatale

One of the most significant actors in French film history, Jeanne Moreau made her name playing alluring but troubled heroines. Whilst the term femme fatale followed Moreau to the grave, Kitty Grady explores how Moreau brought a more nuanced definition to the age-old archetype, one that coincided with the birth of the French New Wave.
