For LACMA Film Club and Film Independent members only
Includes a conversation with actor Kristen Stewart and writer/ irector Olivier Assayas
The filmmaker and actress team from 2014’s Clouds of Sils Maria—director Olivier Assayas and star Kristen Stewart—reunite for this low-key, thoughtful and gripping ghost story. Stewart plays Maureen, the right hand to a coolly demanding supermodel. Maureen’s days include carrying out the soul-deadening personal and shopping duties for her boss, Kyra. “She’s a monster,” Maureen says, appraisingly, of the Kyra she rarely sees but keeps the world on its toes (a scene in which Kyra’s casual cruelty is limned quickly and boldly involves her browbeating an animal charity while Maureen tries to get her attention). And a less-known activity—Maureen trying to locate the spirit of her late twin brother, with whom she shares the same potentially threatening medical condition. Or is Maureen—a medium (also like her brother)—trying to find herself while roaming Paris? Stewart’s skill in slowly revealing layers of a character dovetail perfectly with Assayas’s interests in providing elements and details a piece at a time; the goosebumps begin to overtake us ever so slowly, and completely. Star Kristen Stewart and writer/director Assayas will be in attendance for a post screening Q&A.
