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