Kristen Stewart has emerged from the shadow of the teenage Twilight franchise which her made a star, to reveal a serious actress with an impressive portfolio of work.
In her finest performance to date, Stewart moves mesmerically between vulnerable, aggressive, competent, lonely and fragile. Her understated yet significant charisma does much to heighten the mournful beauty and unsettling tone.
Maureen is an American in Paris who believes she has psychic ability. Her life is on hold as she mourns her twin brother who recently passed away.
While working as a personal shopper for a celebrity, a malevolent spirit draws Maureen into an extraordinarily tense and transgressive relationship.
