(France, 2017) Directed by Olivier Assayas. Screenplay by Assayas and Christelle Meaux. Cast: Kristen Stewart, Lars Eidinger, Nora von Waldstätten, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie.

Director Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart, who won raves for their previous film The Clouds of Sils Maria, have made a new movie that digs even deeper into longing and the mysterious veil separating the living and the dead. Stewart plays a young American working as the personal shopper to an obnoxiously wealthy socialite in Paris. As she rides her scooter from designer to thrift store to pick out chic ensembles for her employer, she is actually occupied with another, more difficult task: trying to make contact with her recently deceased twin brother in the house where he died… “Amid all the shifting mirrored surfaces of Olivier Assayas’ bewitching, brazenly unconventional ghost story, this much can be said with certainty: Kristen Stewart has become one hell of an actress.” – Guy Lodge, Time Out. 105 min.
