The Souvenir

The Souvenir

I knew the second I saw the poor Rotten Tomatoes audience rating of 33 that I was going to enjoy this film. It simply means that the film isn't mainstream audience friendly. I read a few of the reviews which were basically complaints of the film's pace and lack of conventional plot. So I was excited.

Not sure if it'll be in my 2019 top ten but as of now it is. Enjoyed the journey and for those pre-digital film school grads... there is some nice film school detail in here. Honor Swinton Byrne is quite good and carries the film.

Thank you Cineplex Odeon for putting films like this in multiplexes. There was a healthy audience (for this sort of film) at the Monday night show which shows that there are audiences (at least in Canada) for more challenging films.
