Olivier Assayas, the internationally-acclaimed director of Clouds of Sils Maria and Summer Hours, returns with this ethereal and mysterious ghost story starring Kristen Stewart (Clouds of Sils Maria, Twilight) as a high-fashion personal shopper to the stars who is also a spiritual medium.
“Personal Shopper is an incredible work that will continue to haunt you, long after it is over.” – Peter Sobcyznski, RogerEbert.com
Grieving the recent death of her twin brother, she haunts his Paris home, determined to make contact with him. As the emotionally complicated heart of the film, Stewart is fragile and enigmatic – and nearly always on screen. From an opening sequence in a haunted house with an intricately constructed soundtrack to a cat-and-mouse game on a trip from Paris to London built entirely around text messaging, the sleek and sophisticated Personal Shopper (winner of the Best Director award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival) is a genre exploration that brings the psychological and supernatural thriller into the digital age. (Dir. by Olivier Assayas, 2017, France/Germany, in English/French/Swedish with English subtitles, 105 mins., Rated R)
