DVD - 2017

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, and a chilling meditation on modern modes of communication and the way we mourn those we love.

Review by Library Journal Review

An American living in Paris, Maureen (Kristen Stewart) works as a glorified gofer for a haughty celebrity too self-involved to buy her own clothes, jewelry, and the like. Haunted by the presumed specter of her deceased twin brother, Maureen also starts getting text messages from an unknown sender persuading her to try on her employer's haute couture-a definite no-no that ends up making her a suspect in the woman's subsequent murder. Director Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria) blends supernatural and mystery elements in a uniquely intriguing mix. [See Trailers, LJ 9/1/17.] © Copyright 2017.
