Acclaimed filmmaker Olivier Assayas (“Carlos,” “Clouds of Sils Maria”) returns with his latest drama, “Personal Shopper,” which recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to a much publicised response. Today, the first trailer for it has gone online which you can see below.
In the film Stewart plays a professional shopper living in Paris. After her twin brother passes away, she starts to receive messages from him beyond the grave.
Critics first screened the unconventional ghost story which drew boos, the first of this year’s festival, but at the actual premiere the following night the film and its star Kristen Stewart got a lengthy standing ovation. Assayas has already given an official response to that critics reaction:
“When you come to Cannes, you’re prepared. You’re prepared for anything. Movies have a life of their own … people have expectations of a film and then the film is something else. It happens to me once in a while where people just don’t get the ending.”
How ill you feel about it? The film is expected to play the festival circuit for the next few months before opening later this year in various territories.
