Mournful drama turns ghost story in this chilling film from Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria), taking place in the heart of the Paris fashion world.
American in Paris Maureen (Kristen Stewart) works as a personal shopper for the demanding Kyra, a member of Paris’s fashion glitterati – a job that she hates. Since the death of her twin brother, she has become determined to make contact with him. And while staying in Kyra’s flat, she receives a text that makes her think she may have succeeded in communicating with the dead.
With an exceptional performance from Stewart, plus some of the most suspense-laden text messaging scenes ever committed to film, Personal Shopper is a gripping, genre-bending head-scratcher. France/Germany 2017 Dir Olivier Assayas 105 min
