Dir. Joanna Hogg. 2019, 119 min. Digital projection. With Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke, Tilda Swinton. A shy but ambitious film student (Byrne) begins to find her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man (Burke). She defies her protective mother (Swinton) and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship that comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams. From acclaimed writer-director Joanna Hogg comes an enigmatic and autobiographical portrait of the artist as a young woman, brought to life through Honor Swinton Byrne’s breakout performance. An A24 Release. View trailer.
“Byrne is a revelation, and Julie is an embodiment of the awkwardness and heedless grace of young adulthood almost without precedent in the movies. For the duration of The Souvenir, nothing in the world is more important than what will happen to her.”—A.O. Scott, The New York Times
