Maureen (Kristen Stewart) has a job she hates: seeing to the wardrobe of a media celebrity. She couldn’t find anything better to pay for her stay in Paris. And wait. Wait for a sign from the spirit of her twin brother, who died a few months earlier. Until then, her life will stay on hold.
“You don’t need to be familiar with Assayas’s previous work to enjoy Personal Shopper. It works in two realms: as an engrossing ghost story and a drama that addresses profound matters of life and death.” – Pat Padua, WASHINGTON POST
“It is actually Assayas’s best film for a long time, and Stewart’s best performance to date.” – Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
“When one goes to see Kristen Stewart — among the most quicksilver of her generation’s performers — in Olivier Assayas’s Personal Shopper, a shape-shifting, resolutely of-this-moment ghost story that features her in nearly every frame, one goes not to watch her act but refract.” – Melissa Anderson, VILLAGE VOICE
