Movie Story: Kristen Stewart is practically the only person in Olivier Assayas’s haunted-soul saga Personal Shopper, and she plays a young woman without an identity. As in the same director’s Clouds of Sils Maria, she’s an American living in Europe and working as an adjunct to a rich and famous person, in this case a brusque socialite who’s rarely around and for whom she selects fabulously expensive clothing and accessories. Stewart’s character, Maureen, cannot try the clothing on, though. It’s forbidden. And there’s another void in her life. She has lost her twin, Lewis, a brother who promised he’d reach out to her from the beyond if such a thing turned out to exist. Maureen — an amateur medium — thinks it does, and she has been feeling a presence, something watching her. The problem is that he/she/it does not seem particularly fraternal.
