Per­sonal Shop­per (MA15+) Per­sonal Shop­per is the lat­est film from French di­rec­tor Olivier As­sayas. Kris­ten Ste­wart plays Mau­reen Cartwight, an Amer­i­can liv­ing in Paris and work­ing as an as­sis­tant to a wealthy su­per­star/so­cialite known only as Kyra (Nora von Wald­stat­ten).

Ul­ti­mately Per­sonal Shop­per moves into mur­der mys­tery ter­ri­tory, but don’t ex­pect to find neat ex­pla­na­tions for ev­ery­thing. The Coun­try Doc­tor
