"An endlessly fascinating work that reconfirms that Assayas is one of the most ingenious French filmmakers at work today." — Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com

“Kristen Stewart is an enigmatic, warily frayed-yet-unafraid presence…unquestionably the actress of the moment, magnetically watchable.” — Nick James, Sight and Sound

Mourning the death of her brother, who had promised her a sign from the other world, Maureen (Stewart) personal assistant to a French star, buries herself in the work of tracking gowns, bags and jewelry for her demanding client, until a string of intimately familiar and unnerving texts on her phone introduces an unidentified presence that knows her every movement and location. Eclectic and versatile director Assayas (CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, IRMA VEP) is operating in full pop-culture mode in this au courant drama that is simultaneously a thriller of a ghost story featuring a big spooky mansion, a horror/murder mystery with a glimpse of gore, and a fashionista’s wet dream, with Stewart modeling fetish booties and high-powered haute couture. In English, French, and Swedish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
