Winner of 3 British Independent Film Awards. British writer-director Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir (2019) and its follow-up are among the best autobiographical films ever made. In them, she taps into the indefinable qualities of memoir and cinema that make these modes so powerful yet often so recondite. In the aftermath of her tumultuous relationship with a charismatic and manipulative older man, Julie begins to untangle her fraught love for him in making her graduation film, sorting fact from his elaborately constructed fiction. Joanna Hogg’s shimmering story of first love and a young woman’s formative years, The Souvenir Part II is a portrait of the artist that transcends the halting particulars of everyday life — a singular, alchemic mix of memoir and fantasy.
“For her new film, Hogg goes further, and in so doing makes one of 2021’s best movies.”—Vox
“The best kind of sequel, not merely enhancing or deepening its predecessor but also recasting it in a revelatory new light.”—Los Angeles Times
