Preview: The Worst Person in the World (15) + ScreenTalk with Joachim Trier & Renate Reinsve

A young couple blow cigarette smoke into one another's mouths

The latest from acclaimed filmmaker Joachim Trier (Oslo, August 31st), this is a wistful and subversive romantic drama about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo.

The film follows Julie (Renate Reinsve), a vibrant and impulsive young woman who, on the verge of turning thirty, is faced with a series of drastic choices that force her to continually reinvent and pursue new perspectives on her life. Over the course of several years, Julie navigates multiple love affairs, existential uncertainty and career dissatisfaction as she slowly starts deciding what she wants to do, who she wants to be with, and ultimately who she wants to become.

Co-starring Trier regular Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum as the men pivoting around Julie’s magnetic presence, it’s a wry, life-affirming coming of age story told with Trier’s characteristically exuberant flourishes that deservedly won Reinsve the Best Actress award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.

This event is hosted by cinema curator Sonia Zadurian.
