Personal Shopper Trailer

"We made this oath - whoever died first would send the other a sign." IFC has released an official trailer for the latest film from French filmmaker Olivier Assayas, titled Personal Shopper, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. This sorta-horror film deals with a young women who is haunted by a ghost through text messages (seriously). She works as a "personal shopper" for a famous celebrity, picking up clothes all over Europe for her to wear. The cast includes Lars Eidinger, Sigrid Bouaziz, Anders Danielsen Lie, Ty Olwin, Hammou Graia, Nora Van Waldstatten, and Benjamin Biolay. This will likely be a very polarizing film, as it's not really the typical horror most expect, but does have a chilling side.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Olivier Assayas' Personal Shopper, from Vanity Fair (via TFS):

Personal Shopper

Maureen, mid-20s, has a job she hates: seeing to the wardrobe of a media celebrity. She couldn’t find anything better to pay for her stay in Paris. And wait. Wait for a sign from the spirit of her twin brother, who died a few months earlier. Until then, her life will stay on hold. Personal Shopper is both written and directed by acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas, of the films Les destinées, Demonlover, Clean, Boarding Gate, Summer Hours, Carlos, Something in the Air and Clouds of Sils Maria previously. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and also played at the Toronto and Melbourne Film Festivals, with the NYFF next. IFC Films will release Assayas' Personal Shopper in select theaters starting on March 10th.

I got a chuckle out of the "dash Hitchcockian..." is that even something you should promote? A "dash"?!!!

Kirsten Stewart has yet to win me over...perhaps this film will be her chance? Color me intrigued...

Same here. The day she'll stop doing her gothe I'm in.

What's wrong with her doing goth? I think it suits her. No need to drop that ...

I don't know shiboleth. She's like a one note instrument emotionally speaking. She could play in a comedy and she will seldom crack a smile to the camera.

I do understand your view, tarek. However, there are some instruments you don't play for some occasions. In fact, some instruments are better if they are used in a way that make them sound best. I might be a bit wrong about music comparison, but I think I am right when I say, she's very good right where she stands and she does not need to do something else. Every tone eventually has its nuances and if played right, you don't need another since you can have a symphony with the one you work with. The whole idea is wrong, not the tone ... Besides, comedy is one of the worst genre these days and if I were her, I would be happy for not playing in it ...

If i read you well shiboleth, Kristen Stewart has a very limited range in acting. Is that what you said?

tarek on Oct 1, 2016


No, quite the opposite ...

I liked her in American Ultra

She played a pothead. Not much of a stretch there....

;D It's like a monkey playing a monkey.

That was a really bad film. I kinda feel embarrassed I watched that one...

I am not some big fan of Kristen Stewart but I think she's ok. And this looks a bit intriguing ...
