Julie is turning thirty and her life is an existential mess. Several of her talents have gone to waste and her older boyfriend, Aksel – a successful graphic novelist – is pushing for them to settle down. One night, she gatecrashes a party and meets the young and charming Eivind. Before long, she has broken up with Aksel and thrown herself into yet another new relationship, hoping for a new perspective on her life. But she will come to realise that some life choices are already behind her. An instant classic and the final film in Joachim Trier’s loose ‘Oslo’ trilogy, which studies of the self-deceptions of Oslo’s struggling youthful bourgeois class. With a pinpoint performance from Renate Reinsve as Julie, guiding us through the pleasures of indecisiveness, and a script that manages to be both tinged with fantasy and yet also acutely precise in its realism, we have one the year’s most charming and thoughtful films.
