Hogg’s reflective, semi-autobiographical work is at once an authentic portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship, examining the process of film-making and a deep exploration of burgeoning romance.
In a breakout performance, Honor Swinton Byrne plays Julie, a young aspiring filmmaker who falls for Anthony (Tom Burke), an older, unstable and mysterious man. Julie attempts to navigate the complexities and compromises between developing her career and the ever-deepening and consuming nature of her relationship. In The Souvenir (winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize, 2019 Sundance Film Festival), Joanna Hogg further develops her unmistakably subtle and expansive mode of filmmaking, crafting an intimate portrait of a young woman’s competing desires in art and romance.
