The Souvenir

Director:

Joanna Hogg’s 2019 film The Souvenir is based on her own experiences as a student filmmaker in the 1980s. This leads JJ and Steve to again ponder the question of whether such a personal story can be fully accessible to an audience. They are sharply divided on their ratings, but agree that this isn’t a film for everyone. Listen in to the episode to find out who they think this film is for.
