Just announced as the winner of Best Foreign Language Film in the New York Critics Circle Awards.
Julie (Renate Reinsve) is turning 30 and is facing an existential crisis.
Constantly changing her mind about what she wants to do with her life, Julie has wasted her talents. Now her successful older boyfriend Aksel (Anders Danielsen Lie) wants to settle down, and perhaps even have a child. When she gatecrashes a party, she meets the charming Eivind (Herbert Nordrum). Whilst careful not to cheat on their respective partners, the initial spark lingers.
Celebrated director Joachim Trier’s (Oslo, August 31st & Reprise) latest story The Worst Person in the World is a funny, romantic and unforgettable film – showing the impact tricky of life decisions with visually audacious sequences and great performances. Reinsve is splendid, giving a vibrant and award-winning performance as a young woman indecisive in love and life.
Winner of the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival, The Worst Person In The World is a smart, sexy and funny coming-of-age drama from famed Norwegian director Joachim Trier.
