Academy Award Nominee. Julie (Renate Reinsve, who won the Best Actress award at Cannes last year for her portrayal of this character) is nearing 30. She is the heart of this coming-of-age film, a type of film generally attached to teenagers and other kids on the cusp of grownup understanding. Julie, of course, is no child, but she is a young person in search of the key that will unlock the entrance to her adult life. Structured in 12 chapters along with a prologue and epilogue, The Worst Person in the World was written especially for Reinsve by writer/director Joachim Trier. Julie’s restlessness is anchored by a self-confidence that Reinsve conveys guilelessly and brilliantly. –Austin Chronicle
