Maureen (Kristen Stewart) is living in France and working as a personal shopper for celebrity Kyra (Nora von Waldstätten). She's also in mourning for the twin brother who had recently died. Amateur medium Maureen waits for a sign from her brother, but finds herself embroiled in a sinister plot.
Personal Shopper is a French mystery thriller with a supernatural twist. There are a few very chilling moments and the creepy text exchange that raises and sustains the tension. Kristen Stewart manages to look sour in every moment of trying on exclusive clothes or picking up expensive jewellery (poor Kristen) but her intensity works here. There are a few twists and turns to maintain the interest in a film that's hard to categorise. Enjoyable.
