Watch This Before You See THE SOUVENIR Part II: Joanna Hogg’s CAPRICE
Certainly many of you reading this have seen Joanna Hogg’s remarkable coming of age film THE SOUVENIR: Part I (2019) and you are no doubt planning to join us at the AFS Cinema for the release of THE SOUVENIR: Part II when it opens on 11/19.
If you have seen the trailer for Part II you probably know that in the course of that movie the young filmmaker played by Honor Swinton Byrne makes her thesis film as her 80’s London social life swirls around her. It won’t surprise anyone that the events of these features hew closely to the events of Hogg’s own life.
Here, for your perusal through Thursday 11/11, thanks to Le Cinema Club, is Hogg’s own thesis film CAPRICE, starring none other that THE SOUVENIR co-star – and mother of Honor Swinton Byrne, Tilda Swinton – or, as she was known then, Matilda Swinton.
Enjoy it, and if you’re new to THE SOUVENIR, have no fear, we are showing PART I – with special AFS signature pricing for members. These films have a richness of experience and a sense of place like few others in recent memory. You will leave the theater with that full feeling you have after reading a great memoir. This is a highly recommended experience. Trust us on this one.
