The Souvenir

A shy but ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne) begins to find her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man (Tom Burke). She defies her protective mother (Tilda Swinton) and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship. From acclaimed British writer-director Joanna Hogg comes an enigmatic and personal portrait of the artist as a young woman. (R, 119 mins)
