About the film:
A shy film student begins finding her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man. She defies her protective mother and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams.
About the filmmaker:
Joanna Hogg is a true creative force in independent cinema and one of the United Kingdom’s leading auteurs. She made her directorial and screenwriting feature film debut with Unrelated (2007), winner of the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize at the 2007 London Film Festival. After she helmed the critically acclaimed films Archipelago (2010) and Exhibition (2013), she crafted the intensely personal Sundance Grand Jury prize winner The Souvenir (2019), retelling the story of her relationship with an abusive older man while attending film school. The Souvenir: Part II, released in 2021, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and continues the story.See our upcoming films
