Director Olivier Assayas (The Clouds of Sils Maria, Summer Hours, Irma Vep) and actress Kristen Stewart reunite in this intriguing ghost story set in the fashion underworld of Paris.
Maureen is the personal shopper for a high-powered designer who demands an endless supply of clothes and accessories. When her twin brother dies from a congenital heart condition, she wanders around their childhood home attempting to communicate with him. As she moves through the slick and garish world of her fashionista employer, and the dark, eerie spirit world where her brother is located, mysterious things begin to occur. Fleshed out with highly personal touches that explain the obsessions that haunt and trouble her, Personal Shopper tells Maureen’s story with elegance and tension. In English, French, and Swedish with subtitles.
