Joanna Hogg’s fourth feature is by far her most autobiographical – a semi-fictionalized account of her own experiences as a young upper class film student in the 1980s. As Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) attempts to make her way through this male dominated world, she develops an intense relationship with an older man whose casual charm and confidence belie a flawed and controlling character. Her mother (played by her real-life mother, Tilda Swinton) can do no more than stand by and watch as her unworldly daughter learns some painful but necessary life lessons. ‘The best British film for a long time’ – Evening Standard.
