Directed by: Joachim Trier
Staring: Renate Reinsve & Anders Danielsen Lie
A romantic drama is not the usual Keynsham film choice, but this very modern story following Julie (Renate Reinsve) through the meaning of life and quest for love is not to be missed. A truthful, tender masterpiece about how coming of age has no age-limit – love, for others and for ourselves, is what makes every risk and loss worthwhile. This film is sweet and gentle and funny, in ways that are undoubtedly conventional but also very real. It’s the kind of film we’ve all seen done so badly that it’s an unexpected treat to see it done well and to realise that its themes are very important: Who do you fall in love with? Who is “the one”? When do you realise that you are just settling? Reinsve’s performance is just so good. A star is born.
