Personal shopper

March 10th
Studio: IFC Films

Director: Olivier Assavas

Screenplay: Olivier Assavas

Cast:  Kristen Stewart, Lars Eidinger, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie, Ty Olwin, Hammou Graia, Nora von Waldstätten, Benjamin Biolay, Audrey Bonnet

EXPECTATIONS

Kristen Stewart has become a muse of a French director Olivier Assavas. After a big success with Cesar winning movie Clouds of Sils Maria , here comes their second cooperation. Don’t expect too much success at the US box office; hopefully it will have a good run as an independent movie.

PLOT

Maureen is the personal shopper for a high-powered German model/designer and jet-setter who demands an endless supply of clothes and accessories be procured and delivered to her. But Maureen has just suffered a personal trauma: her beloved twin brother, Lewis, to whom she was intensely attached, has just died due to a congenital heart condition. She is also a medium, and attempts to communicate with Lewis while wandering around their cavernous childhood home in Paris, where he died. Gradually, mysterious things begin to occur.

EXCITEMENT-METER    4/10

I don’t think many people are looking forward to this one. Thou if you like something different and you are sick of blockbusters I think you can actually enjoy complex storytelling.
