PERSONAL SHOPPER

"An unexpected, beguiling … cinematic experience. Kristen Stewart['s] remarkable performance [is] at once forcefully headstrong and unexpectedly fragile." – MUBI Notebook

Co-winner of the Cannes Best Director gong, French auteur extraordinaire Olivier Assayas' (Demonlover MIFF 2002; Irma Vep, MIFF 1997) brand new film is an unconventional ghost story.

Maureen works by day as a personal assistant for a celebrity, picking up – and, against instructions, trying on – extravagant dresses for her boss. She is also grieving her twin brother, who she recently lost. When she tries to make contact with him in his deserted mansion, something far more menacing and ungovernable is unleashed.

Featuring an idiosyncratic, virtuoso star turn by Kristen Stewart, Personal Shopper juxtaposes high fashion with a foreboding atmosphere – a sly exercise in genre subversion by Assayas that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

"[A] gliding, glassy sashay through multiple, splintered genres and levels of consciousness … Assayas, working in the high-concept, game-playing vein of his Irma Vep and Demonlover, is in shivery control of it all. And he's found an impeccably attuned muse in Stewart." – Time Out London
