Maureen (Kristen Stewart) is a Personal Shopper by day and a ghost hunter by night. Trying to find proof her brother is communicating with her from beyond the grave she hires herself out to investigate houses that may hold the key to an experience with the dead. When she is communicated though, is the from beyond the grave or something much more alive?
At the start of Personal Shopper, you can’t ignore the fact that Kristen Stewart feels to be playing that typically awkward pale character we’ve seen in the past. The fact is though, there is a good reason for it. Weighed down by not only a job she feels uncomfortable in, but also a foot in the world of the dead, »

On the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death, Jacques Doillon delivers a useful educational tool for the armchair traveler too lazy to go to a museum. Or read a book. “Rodin” could also be watched as prep work before going to the Musée Rodin, a partner in the film’s production. What it’s not so good for is a cinema audience expecting more than a plodding two-hour lesson in the artist’s life. Given Doillon’s recent films (“Love Battles”), one could have imagined this would have more flesh pounding than clay kneading, but no, his “Rodin” is a meticulously reverential, handsomely lit and very dull biopic about the 19th century’s most revolutionary sculptor. Given the artist’s cachet among culture vultures, it’s likely some art houses will book a limited run, but reviews won’t be positive.

Chicago – I’ve had a deep fascination with ghost stories since I was a kid. There is something both interesting and terrifying knowing that there are often unseen forces we could be encountering in our everyday life. Olivier Assayas creates an unexplainable phantasm thriller in “Personal Shopper” that remains completely captivating throughout even if you don’t understand what you just experienced.
There is an unmistakable style that permeates from all of Olivier Assayas’ projects. There is an effortless naturalism that is ever present in his films, whether it comes from the performances or the physical locations. In the absorbing film “Clouds of Sils Maria,” Assayas explores the shifting role of nature as both the geographical force and the more human aspects of it when it comes to aging. Everything is tied together beautifully and made into complementary metaphors that apply to both the people and the places. “Personal Shopper »

Personal Shopper, 2016.
Written and Directed by Olivier Assayas.
Revolves around a ghost story that takes place in the fashion underworld of Paris.
Add another tick to the win column for Kristen Stewart (who has broken free from the overbearingly negative stigma of Twilight going on to deliver a number of remarkable performances, and is re-teaming with her Clouds of Sils Maria writer and director Olivier Assayas) as English/French film Personal Shopper sees the actress turn in her most accomplished work to date. The downside is that the twisty, genre-mixing thriller isn’t necessarily the strongest filmmaking achievement she has appeared in, even if there is a hell of a lot to admire within.
Assayas has essentially crafted a piece of art where the middle act is all at once suffused »

It has long been apparent that Kristen Stewart is a future Academy Award winner, not just a surefire nominee one day. Part of the double edged sword that you have with her output is that post Twilight, she’s been almost determined to stick to challenging independent fare. Cinephiles are obviously lucking out, but a lot of her work is flying under the radar. As such, she remains on the outside looking in, for now. This week, another indie featuring a stupendous turn from Stewart hits theaters in Personal Shopper. It’s a flawed film and not for everyone, but she is absolutely great in it. As such, if she keeps showcasing her talents in this way, it might take time before the Academy notices. At the same time, if these smaller movies continue to have top notch Stewart performances in them, Oscar could take heed anyway before long. The »

And it promises to show Kristen Stewart in a new light that will further establish her as one of the best actresses of her generation.
Kristen Stewart has continued to distance herself from the Twilight franchise by taking on interesting, drama-heavy indepenandant projects that are off the beaten path. Personal Shopper made its debut at Cannes last year. »
"We made this oath: whoever died first would send the other a sign." IFC Films has debuted another new official Us trailer for the indie sorta-horror film from French filmmaker Olivier Assayas, titled Personal Shopper starring Kristen Stewart, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year. The film follows a young women who is haunted by a ghost and she communicates with him through text messages (seriously). She works as a "personal shopper" for a famous celebrity, picking up clothes all over Europe for her to wear. The full cast includes Lars Eidinger, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie, Ty Olwin, Hammou Graia, Nora Van Waldstatten & Benjamin Biolay. I'm not a fan of this film, but that's me.
