Directed by Joanna Hogg
2018, UK, 115 min

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. Joanna Hogg’s dream-like, visually splendid tale of first love stars Honor Swinton Byrne alongside her mother, Tilda Swinton, and Tom Burke. Based on elements from Hogg’s own life, The Souvenir centres around Julie (Swinton Byrne), a 1980s film student from a privileged background who wishes to make films depicting the harsh social realities of Thatcherite Britain. Into her life comes Anthony (Tom Burke), who’s older and charismatic. Following a chance meeting, the two embark on a tempestuous love affair. The result is a film of great power and unforgettable imagery, perfectly capturing the social milieu, and all the euphoria of first love and it’s accompanying harsh realizations. – Syndey Film Festival

Reviews

Gorgeous and deeply felt. A piercingly realized and richly affecting memoir of lost love.
- Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
An illuminating (self-)portrait of a young artist as well as a mesmerizing chronicle of a consuming, destructive relationship that steadily inches its way under the viewer's skin.
- Hollywood Reporter
