The Worst Person in the World

Director Joachim Trier returns with another modern twist on a classically constructed character portrait of contemporary life in Oslo. Chronicling four years in the life of Julie, The Worst Person in the World examines one woman’s quest for love and meaning in the modern world. Fluidly told in twelve chapters, the film features a breakout performance by Cannes Best Actress winner Renate Reinsve as she explores new professional avenues and embarks on relationships with two very different men (Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum) in her search for happiness and identity.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"Its brilliant, full-on performance from Reinsve deserves to be celebrated far and wide."
Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Trier has taken on one of the most difficult genres imaginable, the romantic drama, and combined it with another very tricky style - the coming-of-ager - to craft something gloriously sweet and beguiling."
Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
