The Souvenir (15) at Ely Cinema
Writer and director Joanna Hogg’s film is a semi-autobiographical masterpiece exploring the nature of memory.
Set in London in the early 80s, a shy but ambitious film student falls into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship with a charismatic but untrustworthy older man. Acclaimed director Joanna Hogg’s indelible story of first love confirms her status as a modern visionary with a deft, distinctive and deeply personal story. Some sexuality, graphic nudity, drug material and language.
Director: Joanna Hogg.
Stars: Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke.
