Dir. Olivier Assayas. 2016, 105 mins. DCP. In English, French and Swedish with English subtitles. With Kristen Stewart, Lars Eidinger, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie. Olivier Assayas (Best Director, 2016 Cannes Film Festival) reteams with Kristen Stewart (Clouds of Sils Maria) for this stylish and cinematically singular supernatural thriller. Maureen is a young American in Paris who works as a personal shopper for a demanding celebrity. She is also a medium, like her recently deceased twin brother, whom she is desperate to contact from the beyond. When she starts receiving mysterious text messages from an unknown source, she is uncertain if they are coming from her brother or from a less benevolent correspondent.
