The film was booed after its premiere at Cannes Film Festival
The first trailer for Personal Shopper starring Kristen Stewart has landed, after its premiere at Cannes Film Festival.
Directed by Olivier Assayas, the film follows Kristen Stewart as the titular aide to the rich and famous, who’s also struggling with the death of a family member who may or may not be a continued presence in her life.
According to Consequence of Sound, the film was booed by audiences after it debuted in competition for the Palme D’or (Cannes’ top prize).
Stewart also stars in the upcoming Woody Allen movie Cafe Society and admitted that she had some reservations about working with the director.
The star, who plays an office secretary stuck in a love triangle with a Hollywood agent (Steve Carell) and his nephew (Jesse Eisenberg) in the film, said she was aware of sex abuse claims made by Dylan Farrow, Allen’s adopted daughter with Mia Farrow in 1992. The actress said she consulted co-star Eisenberg over the matter.
She told Variety: “I was like, ‘What do you think? We don’t know any of these people involved. I can personalise situations, which would be very wrong.’ At the end of the day, Jesse and I talked about this. If we were persecuted for the amount of shit that’s been said about us that’s not true, our lives would be over. The experience of making the movie was so outside of that, it was fruitful for the two of us to go on with it.”
Allen denied the allegations at the time. While no charges were brought and the investigation not pursued, the star’s career has been dogged by the claims since.
