Joanna Hogg's new film is a delicate and intimate portrait of a young filmmaker's relationship with an older man

Dream-like and elusive, Hogg's film follows Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne), a young film student living in 1980s Kensington, as she embarks upon a tentative, then fully-fledged affair with a mysterious Foreign Office employee, Anthony (Tom Burke). 

Aided and advised by her mother (Tilda Swinton), Julie slowly begins to unravel Anthony's deceit. With a rhythm and tone all its own, this disconcerting drama beautifully lays out the experience of finding your artistic voice, and your own limits within a relationship, alongside a great contemporary soundtrack featuring The Psychedelic Furs and The Specials.
