Oh, speaking of something else noteworthy about Kristen Stewart‘s Cannes visit…

The actor’s latest collaboration with director Olivier Assayas, called “Personal Shopper,” was booed following a press screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Now I guess every year a film or two gets boo’d; last year it was Gus Van Sant’s “The Sea of Trees,” starring Matthew McConaughey, and now it’s this one. It’s also kinda weird because according to critics, the film is actually pretty okay. So what gives?  Some think it’s subject matter might’ve been the tipping point…

“There’s a certain perverse genius to unveiling a ghost movie at Cannes that relies on the audience to deliver the ‘boos’ as the final credits roll, although one doubts that’s quite what Olivier Assayas was going for with his peculiar ‘Personal Shopper,’” Variety Chief International Film Critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review.

Stewart plays a personal shopper who communicates with spirits in the film, which does sound pretty stupid.  Stewart and Assayas’ last film, 2014’s “Clouds of Sils Maria,” earned her rave reviews and a César — making her the first American actress to win the French prize. So hey, you win some, you lose some.

Do you think Personal Shopper sounds dumb or interesting? Weigh in below!
