CERTAIN WOMEN
Official Competition

The LFF has long loved Kelly Reichardt (River of Grass, Old Joy and most recently, Night Moves). Certain Women reunites her with Michelle Williams (Wendy & Lucy and Meek’s Cutoff) for a story about the lives of three very different women in Livingstone, Montana, a town of only 7,000 residents. Laura Dern’s lawyer is conducting a surreptitious lunchtime affair with a married man while defending a disgruntled construction worker (Jared Harris) in a workplace accident suit. Williams is Gina, a woman of frustrated ambitions attempting to build a ‘perfect’ family with her husband and surly child, but struggling with her own slippery ethics as she tries to get things done in the sleepy town. And Native American actor Lily Gladstone rounds off the trio, playing lonely ranch hand Jamie, who enrols in a night school course and develops confusing feelings for supply teacher Beth (Kristen Stewart). It’s all-round stellar work from an impeccable cast, with striking discovery Gladstone particularly sublime as the near-silent figure struggling to articulate the nature of her interest in Beth. Drawing from Montana-native Maile Meloy’s short stories, Reichardt’s delicate, nuanced direction ensures that the minutest look or gesture gains epic significance. And the only moment in the film to employ scored music is so overwhelming it might just break your heart.

PERSONAL SHOPPER

Following their previous collaboration on the acclaimed Clouds Of Sils Maria, Kristen Stewart reunites with director Olivier Assayas to play Maureen, a medium working in Paris as a personal shopper for a megalomaniacal A-list celebrity. Bored and frustrated by her job, Maureen only remains in France in an attempt to reach the spirit of her recently deceased twin brother. As time goes by, contact looks increasingly unlikely, until Maureen begins to receive strange text messages from an unknown source. Continuing to prove herself one of contemporary cinema’s most dextrous and daring young actors, Kristen Stewart is luminous in the central role; enigmatic, effortless and endlessly watchable. Part sleek fashionista drama, part chilly murder mystery, part bewitching supernatural horror story, this elegant arthouse head-scratcher is hard to define and an absolute pleasure to watch. Give yourself over to its secrets and prepare to be hypnotised.

‘Personal Shopper’ and ‘Certain Women’ To Screen During The New York Film Festival

personal-shopper

Personal Shopper
Directed by Olivier Assayas
France, 2016, 105m
U.S. Premiere
Kristen Stewart is the medium, in more ways than one, for this sophisticated genre exploration from director Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria). As a fashion assistant whose twin brother has died, leaving her bereft and longing for messages from the other side, Stewart is fragile and enigmatic—and nearly always on-screen. From an opening sequence in a haunted house with an intricately constructed soundtrack to a high-tension, cat-and-mouse game on a trip from Paris to London and back set entirely to text messaging, Personal Shopper brings the psychological and supernatural thriller into the digital age.  An IFC Films release.

Screening:

  • Friday, October 7th – 9.00 p.m.
*Includes a Q&A with Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart after the screening.
  • Saturday, October 8th – 3.00 p.m.
*Includes a Q&A with Olivier Assayas ONLY.

Certain Women
Directed by Kelly Reichardt
USA, 2016, 107m
The seventh feature by Kelly Reichardt (Meek’s Cutoff), a lean triptych of subtly intersecting lives in Montana, is a work of no-nonsense eloquence. Adapting short stories by Maile Meloy, Certain Women follows a lawyer (Laura Dern) navigating an increasingly volatile relationship with a disgruntled client; a couple (Michelle Williams and James Le Gros) in a marriage laden with micro-aggression and doubt, trying to persuade an old man (Rene Auberjonois) to sell his unused sandstone; and a young ranch hand (Lily Gladstone) fixated on a new-in-town night school teacher (Kristen Stewart). Shooting on 16mm, Reichardt creates understated, uncannily intimate dramas nestled within a clear-eyed depiction of the modern American West. An IFC Films release.

Screening:

  • Monday, October 3rd- 9.00 p.m.
*Includes a Q&A after the screening with Kelly Reichardt, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, Laura Dern, and Lily Gladstone.
  • Tuesday, October 4th – 6.00 p.m.
