The Souvenir

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival! A shy but ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne in a mesmerizing breakout performance) begins to find her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man (Tom Burke). She defies her protective mother (Tilda Swinton) and concerned friends as she slips deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship that comes dangerously close to derailing the potential of her life and career. Recreated from her own memories of her schooldays in London, writer-director Hogg paints an enigmatic and personal portrait of the artist as a young woman, combining passionate emotions and stylish aesthetics into a lush, dreamlike story of young adulthood and first love. At once enrapturing and mysteriously unsettling, The Souvenir is an essential and enduring film.

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
