Synopsis

Julie is a young film student struggling to find a firm direction in life when she meets the seemingly unwavering and decisive Anthony. The two immediately take to one another and an intense romance blossoms between them. However, as the relationship develops it becomes clear that Anthony is not being honest about all aspects of himself and Julie slowly discovers that they could have potentially devastating consequences for them both.

One of Britain’s most distinctive filmmakers, Joanna Hogg (Archipelago, Unrelated) presents a deeply personal examination of her own youthful experiences in this beautifully crafted portrait of self-discovery.

Starring Honor Swinton Byrne, Neil Young, Tilda Swinton, Richard Ayoade.

“Refrigerated and mysterious, uncompromising, uningratiating; an artefact in the highest auteur register, but a film that creeps up on you – from behind.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Joanna Hogg paints a precise picture of a woman trying to develop her own artistic vision while caught in the slipstream of a toxic relationship. An understated, exquisite gem of a film.” – Empire Magazine
