Personal Shopper 2016
Olivier Assayas has delivered a fundamentally strange, disquieting picture. Personal Shopper is a unique genre-bending psychological thriller.

Maureen (Kristen Stewart) is an American who works in Paris as a personal shopper for Kyra (Nora von Waldstatten), a self-absorbed celebrity. She communicates briefly with her boyfriend (Ty Olwin), a tech expert who is working in Oman. Neither of these relationships matter much to her in comparison to the recent loss of her twin brother who died of a congenital heart condition. He promised to try and contact her from beyond the grave.

And so Maureen is waiting, and it is a hard discipline to keep. This wraithlike young woman spends her downtime communing with ghosts in a haunted house, desperately looking for a sign from her brother. But even more unnerving is her discovery that some mysterious person is stalking her via texts to her phone. He seems to know a lot about her fantasies and her obsession with forbidden activities...
