With the intimate supernatural drama Personal Shopper, the celebrated French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (Summer Hours) conjures a melancholy ghost story set in the world of haute couture.

Starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight  franchise), whose performance in Assayas’s Clouds of Sils Maria made her the first American actor to win a César Award, this evocative character study tells the story of a young American fashion assistant and spiritual medium who is living in Paris and searching for signs of an afterlife following the sudden death of her twin brother.

A stirring depiction of grief in the form of a psychological thriller, Personal Shopper – which won Assayas the best director award at Cannes – is a chilling meditation on modern modes of communication and the way we mourn those we love.

Presented in English and French with English subtitles, Criterion’s director-approved special editions of the film include the following
