Director Joanna Hogg returns to our screens with this glorious follow-up to her 2019 film that critics are arguing is even better than her first.

Also returning is Honor Swinton Byrne as Julie, who finds herself still reckoning with the damage done by her tumultuous former relationship with the charismatic and manipulative Anthony. To take stock of the woman she has now become, Julie tasks herself with creating a graduation film inspired by those events.

Along with Swinton Byrne, the multi award-winning director brings back some of the original cast, including Richard Ayoade and Tilda Swinton, to continue this rich autofictional portrait of the birth of a filmmaker.
