Columbia Film Society: The Worst Person in the World
Director Joachim Trier returns with another modern twist on a classically constructed character portrait of contemporary life in Oslo. Chronicling four years in the life of Julie, The Worst Person in the World examines one woman’s quest for love and meaning in the modern world. Fluidly told in twelve chapters, the film features a breakout performance by Cannes Best Actress winner Renate Reinsve as she explores new professional avenues and embarks on relationships with two very different men in her search for happiness and identity. It’s the rare piece of art actually invested in why an entire generation can seem so aimless and indecisive. (Independent UK). Both Vanity Fair and The Atlantic declared The Worst Person in the World to be the best film of 2021. (In Norwegian) (2 hours 1 minute).
