The Souvenir (15)

Director Joanna Hogg. Drama/Mystery/Romance


New from Joanna Hogg, known for her cerebral dissections of middle-class British life – comes this exquisite semi-autobiographical drama. In 1980s London, amid ascendant Thatcherism and IRA violence, Julie, a young, quietly ambitious film student embarks on her first serious love affair with the mysterious Anthony. She’s trying to develop a documentary project set in working class Sunderland, a community at odds with her own moneyed background, and also based around a boy called Tony. Despite the concerns of her mother (Tilda Swinton) and friends, she slips deeper into her turbulent relationship, finding it increasingly hard to discern fact from fiction. It’s a really gorgeous film – nostalgic, melancholy, specific and intimate, and shot in a way that feels like Hogg is taking you into her confidence as she navigates the confusions of her younger self (or a version of it). It’s also a calling card for Swinton Byrne, who gives a star-making performance as Julie – a diffident yet passionate young woman investigating love, class, creativity and her place in the world.

Starring Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke, Tilda Swinton, Richard Ayoade
