Actress Kristen Stewart’s new supernatural drama has become the first film to receive boos instead of applause at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

The 26-year-old Cesar Award-winning star reteamed with her “Clouds of Sils Maria” director Olivier Assayas for “Personal Shopper”, in which she plays a fashion stylist attempting to speak to the ghost of her dead brother, reported Variety online.

When the movie was screened at the film festival on Monday, some viewers were a little underwhelmed by the ghostly flick – and booed as the credits rolled.

However, some well-respected film critics are taking the negativity with a grain of salt, and they have jumped to the Twilight star’s defence.

“Personal Shopper got the first boos I heard at #Cannes2016, which led me to only clap harder,” The Guardian critic Nigel M Smith wrote.

“I found it beguiling. Stewart is mesmerizing.”

IndieWire’s David Ehrlich echoed his colleagues sentiments, tweeting, “judging by the boos that PERSONAL SHOPPER just got at #Cannes, it might just be one of the best movies ever made.”
