‘Olivier Assayas’s Personal Shopper is stylish, mysterious and very strange. It is a ghost story and suspense thriller, yet also a sympathetically realist portrait of numbed quarterlife loneliness’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Kristen Stewart excels in this strange, surprising and occasionally sublime film…when it comes to projecting anguish and ambiguity, there is no one better than Kristen Stewart.’ ★★★★ Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies
