Mother-daughter acting powerhouses Tilda Swinton and Honor Swinton Byrne co-star in the sequel to Joanna Hogg’s semi-autobiographical masterpiece from 2019.
In 1980s London, film student Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) is picking up the pieces in the aftermath of her disastrous relationship with the enigmatic Anthony (Tom Burke). As she painfully revaluates what she understood about their life together, she throws herself into her graduation film, using it as a tool to intimately process her grief.
Beautifully expanding on Julie’s personal and creative coming-of-age journey, The Souvenir Part II is an exquisite, sensational concluding chapter that also stands alone as a singular piece.
