Olivier Assayas, the internationally-acclaimed director of "Clouds of
Sils Maria" and "Summer Hours," returns with this ethereal and
mysterious ghost story starring Kristen Stewart as a high-fashion
personal shopper to the stars who is also a spiritual medium. Grieving
the recent death of her twin brother, she haunts his Paris home,
determined to make contact with him. A stirring depiction of grief in
the form of a psychological thriller, "Personal Shopper" -- which won
Assayas the best director award at Cannes -- is a chilling meditation
on modern modes of communication and the way we mourn those we love.
