Joanna Hogg’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner takes us back to early 80's London and the insecurities and vulnerabilities of a young filmmaker in this sly, disconcerting drama

A young, quietly ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne) embarks on her first serious love affair with a charismatic and mysterious man (Tom Burke). She tries to disentangle fact from fiction as she surrenders to the relationship, a relationship which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams.

'A visceral, open-hearted exploration of grief and the implacability of loss. Led by extraordinary performances this may well be Hogg's best film so far' ★★★★★ Linda Marric - HeyUGuys

'Remember the name Honor Swinton Byrne. In Joanna Hogg's delicate, dazzling masterpiece, her star is born. Definitely one of the best movies so far this year' ★★★★★ Peter Travers - Rolling Stone

'Hogg's latest feature, The Souvenir... is exceptional' ★★★★★ Independent
