A personal shopper in Paris refuses to leave the city until she makes contact with her twin brother who previously died there. Her life becomes more complicated when a mysterious person contacts her via text message.
In an interview with W magazine, the Kristen Stewart made it clear that she has no qualms about baring it all for her art. In her conversation, she revealed that she was not tense when she had to act naked in front of the camera and the rest of the crew. "I wasn't apprehensive," she said of getting nude for Personal Shopper. "I feel super great with director Olivier [Assayas], as well. The scenes in which I don't have clothes on or the scenes that seem 'risqué' from an outsider's perspective, there was no acknowledgment on his part." Stewart went on to explain why nudity was such a crucial element in the film's arc. "My personal feeling about that is that I'm really unashamed, but within the context of the story, there's a lot of shame. So it's kind of nice to see someone stripped and bare, totally bare. There's strength in it." When it comes to people who get squeamish about onscreen nudity, Stewart thinks their reactions are actually the root of any strangeness. "I'm pretty open. I think people are a little too f**king weird about it, to be honest, but that's kind of why I was like, 'I'll do it,'" she told the magazine.

Maureen Cartwright: I'm a medium. He was- he was a medium. I'll ...
When Maureen is texting, her texts are frequently answered immediately, usually in less than one second. There is no time lag built in for the other person to read her text and type in their response. This goof is probably intentional. Building in a time lag for the other person to read/respond to her messages would considerably slow down the pacing of the movie, so responses to her texts were probably prepared in advance and sent immediately.
