With this fresh, millennial portrait, divided into twelve chapters, arthouse star Joachim Trier returns to the great form he showed with 'Reprise' and 'Oslo, 31 August'. Renate Reinsve delivers a pinpoint performance as Julie, guiding us through the pleasures of indecisiveness. Coming-of-age for millennials, one of the year?s most charming and thoughtful films.
Julie is turning thirty and her life is an existential mess. Several of her talents have gone to waste and her older boyfriend, Aksel 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.
EXPAT CINEMA is our monthly screening of a brand-new non-English arthouse film with English subtitles.
"Trier has taken on one of the most difficult genres imaginable, the romantic drama, and combined it with another very tricky style - the coming-of-ager - to craft something gloriously sweet and beguiling." - ★★★★★ The Guardian
