Shy but ambitious film student Julie is just beginning to find her voice as an artist when she enters into a relationship with a charismatic but erudite dandy. With striking roles for Tilda Swinton and Honor Swynton Byrne, mother and daughter in both this film and real life.

This film is screened again in light of the release of The Souvenir: Part II. Both films can be watched separate from each other.

The more intimate Julie and Anthony become, the more Julie distances herself from her protective mother and worried friends. She dives deeper and deeper in an intense relationship that comes dangerously close to selfdestruction.

A lush and dreamy portrait, obviously made with love for static camera work, long takes and main characters with constrictive inner worlds that was appointed best film of 2019 by cutting edge British film magazine Sight and Sound.
