FROM 18 Feb
In the aftermath of her tumultuous relationship with a charismatic but manipulative older man, Julie begins to untangle her fraught love for him by making her graduation film and sorting fact from his elaborately constructed fiction.
Joanna Hogg’s film – a sequel to 2019’s ‘The Souvenir’ (and completely watchable in its own right) - dances on the border between a making-of story and the film itself, and the line deliciously blurs. The whole experience leads us to contemplate and indulge in the magic art of cinema.
Look out for Byrne’s real-life mother Tilda Swinton playing her Julie’s mother, and Richard Ayoade as an arthouse filmmaker, who delights via a combination of flamboyant outfits and withering lines.
