About the Event

Talk Cinema features sneak previews of award-winning indie and foreign films from national and international film festivals. February’s sneak peek film selection is The Worst Person in the World—the story of a young woman who navigates the troubled waters of her love life and struggles to find her career path. 

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 12 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 (Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum) in her search for happiness and identity.

This film is 2 hours and 7 minutes. Language: Norwegian with English subtitles. 

Talk Cinema offers sneak previews of films personally selected by film critic Harlan Jacobson, former editor of Film Comment magazine, published by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Jacobson created and has programmed the series since 1992. His selections may include an award-winning drama, an outrageous indie comedy, a provocative documentary, or the next breakout hit chosen from among new independent and foreign films from Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, and other internationally ranked film festivals. Discussions with film scholars and special guests follow the screenings.
