Kristen Stewart is the medium, in more ways than one, for this sophisticated genre exploration from director Olivier Assayas (CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, SUMMER HOURS). As a fashion assistant whose twin brother has died, leaving her bereft and longing for messages from the other side, 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 high-tension, cat-and-mouse game on a trip from Paris to London and back set entirely to text messaging, Personal Shopper brings the psychological and supernatural thriller into the digital age.
Directed by Olivier Assayas.
