The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★½

It’s weird to call this a “coming-of-age” film when its leading lady is approaching 30 but, as someone who is also approaching 30 and has found there to be many missteps, incorrect partners and unsure paths to follow along the way, it goes to show that growing up has no cut-off point. 

Renate Reinsve, Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum are all so stellar in this. Julie’s vulnerability and connection with each of the men in her orbit left me in tears more often than not. Joachim Trier has created some of the most beautiful and funny sequences of the year that tug right at your chest with recognition. The “freeze” moment (IYKYK) gutted me!!!!
