Sam talks to writer-director Joachim Trier about his awards-nominated new film, The Worst Person In The World.
A wistful and subversive romantic drama about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It revolves around Julie, a vibrant and impulsive young woman who, on the verge of turning thirty, is faced with a series of choices that force her to continually reinvent and pursue new perspectives on her life. Over the course of several years, Julie navigates multiple love affairs, existential uncertainty and career dissatisfaction as she slowly starts to decide what she wants to do, who she wants to be with, and ultimately who she wants to become.
