According our Cannes correspondent, Sam C. Mac, “no other film at Cannes this year has had quite the same shock of the strange” as Oliver Assayas’s Personal Shopper. The film stars Kristin Stewart, a favorite to win the festival’s Best Actress prize, as a supermodel’s fashion assistant who also happens to be a psychic medium. Following the death of her twin brother from a condition she’s also afflicted with, Stewart’s American in Paris is gripped by a state of ghostly stupor. The film, which received mixed reactions at its premiere on the Croisette, is Stewart’s second collaboration with Assayas after Clouds of Sils Maria and also stars Lars Eidinger (Everyone Else), Sigrid Bouaziz (Eden), and Anders Danielsen Lie (Oslo, August 31st).
The film will be distributed in the United States by IFC Films, though a release date has yet to be set. Watch the trailer below:
