  • [Joanna Hogg] makes brilliant use of shallow focus to keep you keyed in to specific details.

  • Hogg's lighter touch discourages easy judgment. Despite this she has a knack for the kind of vignette that speaks volumes about a relationship.

    October 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The absolute specificity of this story makes it universal too. It's the best British film for a long time.

    August 30, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • As rousing and exhilarating as anything you'll see in a Hollywood blockbuster or high-level horror.

  • The sense of real life rerun is vivid. Hogg keeps you in the palm of her hand as few film-makers could.

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

Audience Reviews for The Souvenir

    Hogg isn't playing by the typical rules of a coming of age drama, which makes "The Souvenir" feel more raw and honest than you'd expect.
