Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria; Summer Hours) won Best Director at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival for this taut and seductive ghost story. Kristen Stewart entrances as Maureen, a young medium who recently lost her twin brother, Lewis, to sudden heart failure. Maureen shares the same rare heart condition that Lewis had, as well as his clairvoyant abilities; the siblings made a promise that if one of them should die, the deceased would send a sign from the afterlife. While she awaits her brother’s message, Maureen takes a job as a personal shopper for a chic celebrity in Paris, where Lewis was living at the time of his death. But when the dead finally come knocking, the presence that haunts Maureen is chillingly unfamiliar.
