Kristen Stewart has come a long way since becoming known for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise. In the years since her twinkly vampire series was released, the actress has gone on to several acclaimed roles in a series of strong indie projects. That being said, not everything she touches turns to gold these days. Her latest film, Personal Shopper, just screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and apparently received widespread boos from the audience.
 
A new report from Variety seems to indicate that a press screening for Personal Shopper at the Cannes Film Festival didn’t exactly go so well. The film received boos from a large segment of the crowd, and many members of the press took to social media after the screening to voice their distaste for the film. Here’s what Robbie Collin of The Telegraph had to say about the screening:
All that being said, we should also point out that the film did indeed receive cheers and praise from a portion of the audience. Many who saw the movie cited that – while it’s not necessarily the best at Cannes this year – Kristen Stewart herself does an amazing job with her role. The movie will be screened for festival judges tomorrow morning, so we will likely know how it actually performs at the event within the coming day. Film critic Jason Solomons noted in his own tweet that the actress manages to elevate the film with her strong acting chops:
Personal shopper tells the bizarre story of a woman working in the French fashion world. Kristen Stewart portrays Maureen, the titular shopper, who for some strange reason has the ability to communicate with the spirits of the dead. It’s an inherently bizarre premise, so we have a distinct feeling that Stewart knew the risks of such an endeavor when she signed on to the project.

Although Personal Shopper didn’t do well with a large segment of the press, that doesn’t inherently mean that it won’t perform well at Cannes overall. The film will screen for judges tomorrow, and it remains entirely plausible that it could still win big before the festival comes to an end.
