In the aftermath of her tumultuous relationship with a charismatic and
manipulative older man, Julie begins to untangle her fraught love for him
in making her graduation film, sorting fact from his elaborately
constructed fiction. Joanna Hogg’s shimmering story of first love and a
young woman’s formative years, The Souvenir Part II is a portrait of the
artist that transcends the halting particulars of everyday life — a
singular, alchemic mix of memoir and fantasy.
