Following their previous collaboration on the acclaimed Clouds Of Sils Maria, Kristen Stewart reunites with director Olivier Assayas to play Maureen, a medium working in Paris as a personal shopper for a megalomaniacal A-list celebrity. Bored and frustrated by her job, Maureen only remains in France in an attempt to reach the spirit of her recently deceased twin brother. As time goes by, contact looks increasingly unlikely, until Maureen begins to receive strange text messages from an unknown source.
Part sleek fashionista drama, part chilling murder mystery, part bewitching supernatural horror story, this elegant arthouse head-scratcher escapes easy definition and is an absolute pleasure to watch. Give yourself over to its secrets and prepare to be hypnotised.
“Personal Shopper is an uncategorisable – yet undeniably terrifying – drama about a fashion PA trying to exorcise herself of her dead twin.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
