Critic Reviews for The Souvenir: Part II

All Critics (100) | Top Critics (42)

Hogg captures something I've felt acutely as a female filmmaker: a desperate need for everyone to like you, which eliminates any possibility of their respect.

December 1, 2021 | Full Review…

Writer-director Joanna Hogg's artistic choices formulate something that isn't easily explained and is fathomable only in the viewing of it.

November 23, 2021 | Full Review…

There's nothing actor-ish or mannered about Byrne. She doesn't even seem to be giving a performance, which underscores just how good a performance it actually is.

November 14, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Joanna Hogg's film treat a young artist's coming of age with disarming seriousness.

November 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Like the original, the sequel makes the most of the very real mother-daughter dynamic.

November 11, 2021 | Full Review…

It's less immediate than the first film, less cumulatively dramatic, but it flourishes in its complexity, in its depiction of the whole of Julie as she tries to focus her loss through her film school graduation project.
