Sight & Sounds' best film of 2019 is set in the 1980s. Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) is a young film student from a privileged background who begins relationship with Anthony (Tom Burke), an older man who manages to insinuate himself into her life.

Whilst the bonds strengthen and the relationship becomes more inward-looking, secrets are revealed.

The Souvenir is a "masterful portrait ...of... love as an addiction for which there is no easy cure. Swinton Byrne and Burke make for one of the year's most intriguing screen couples, although this is a romance based on anxiety, narcissism and opportunism rather than anything resembling genuine affection." Toronto Star

As rousing and exhilarating as anything you'll see in a Hollywood blockbuster or high-level horror.

Tender and charming, but the bitter sting elevates it to greatness.
