I had no clue what this movie was even remotely about going into watching it. I thought it was going to be one of those Bling Ring movies where she shops for famous and wealthy people and then steals from them. But nope. This is a creepy AF movie about a girl who is a personal shopper and who is also in mourning for her brother.
The film starts out in a creepy yet strangely beautiful house, where Maureen (Kristen Stewart) is seeking for her brothers spirit… yes that’s right… his spirit. I was completely thrown off guard in the first few minutes of the film. There’s actually two things happening. One is the haunting, and the other is the stalking. Maureen is being stalked. And what does she do? She continues to text this person who is turning her life upside down.
In the end, none of my questions were answered. Who was the stalker? Was it her dead brother speaking to her through the phone? Who was the murderer? Way too many unanswered questions for me. However, I must say that I loved Kristen Stewart in this film. I felt like her emotions were raw and perfect for what was happening on screen.
This film was definitely eerie, just like the famous critics announced long ago. I enjoyed it even though I felt like the story itself had some disconnects… or perhaps I just couldn’t see the connections. I’m going to give Personal Shopper a “Liked It.” I would recommend it if you’re looking for something that’s creepy, yet not jump out of your seat scary. (4/5).
