Following a fantastic collaboration in 2014's highly acclaimed (and sorely under seen) THE CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, director Olivier Assayas re-teams with Kristen Stewart (delivering an equally nuanced, strong performance) in PERSONAL SHOPPER, a hauntingly intimate, quietly erotic thriller set against the backdrop of the world of Paris' high-end world of couture.
Maureen (Stewart) is a young American in Paris making her living as a personal shopper for a celebrity - who may have the psychic ability to communicate with spirits, just like her twin brother, Lewis, who recently passed away. Maureen soon starts receiving mysterious messages coming from an unknown source.
"A Hitchcockian POLTERGEIST meets SINGLE WHITE FEMALE, it's exactly as confused as that sounds, but just as intriguing. Stewart shows she’s now one of the most interesting actresses of her generation." (Empire Magazine)
"PERSONAL SHOPPER attempts a tricky series of potentially jarring tonal shifts with varying results, bolstered by a performance from Kristen Stewart that's impossible to ignore." (Rotten Tomatoes)
"It works in two realms: as an engrossing ghost story and a drama that addresses profound matters of life and death." (Washington Post)
"Another intriguing experiment from one of the oddest and most interesting partnerships in the movies today." (Newsday)
