'Personal Shopper' and 'Certain Women' will screen at the New York Film Festival

Certain Women
Directed by Kelly Reichardt
USA, 2016, 107m

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

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.

Personal Shopper
Directed by Olivier Assayas
France, 2016, 105m
U.S. Premiere

  • Friday 7 October - 9.00pm
Includes a Q&A with Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart after the screening.
  • Saturday 8 October - 3.00pm
Includes a Q&A with Olivier Assayas only.

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.

The New York Film Festival runs from 30 September until 16 October.
