The Guardian's Best Films of 2019 - no.5
Winner of Sundance 2019's Grand Jury Prize, 'The Souvenir' is the compelling, semi-autobiographical drama by award-winning director/writer Joanna Hogg ('Unrelated', 'Archipelago', 'Exhibition').
A young, quietly ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne) embarks on her first serious love affair with a charismatic and mysterious man (Tom Burke). She tries to disentangle fact from fiction as she surrenders to the relationship, which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams.
