The Souvenir Part II

Joanna Hogg | 2021 | 107 MINS
Fri 12:45 screening cancelled due to weather - Apologies. ... BFI Sight & Sound magazine’s best film of 2021!

Drawing on a terrific performance from Honor Swinton Byrne, this is a story of profound emotional complexity and elegant storytelling.

In Detail

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.
