Julie is turning thirty and her life is an existential mess. Several of her talents have gone to waste and her older boyfriend, Aksel —a successful graphic novelist— is pushing for them to settle down. One night, she gatecrashes a party and meets the young and charming Eivind. Before long, she has broken up with Aksel and thrown herself into yet another new relationship, hoping for a new perspective on her life. But she will come to realize that some life choices are already behind her.

Joachim Trier

Born in Copenhagen, 1974, Joachim Trier grew up in Norway in a filmmaking family. After attending the European Film College in Denmark, he trained at the British National Film and Television School, where he made several award winning short films. His debut feature ‘Reprise’ (2006) received numerous international awards, including Best Director at Karlovy Vary and the Discovery Award at Toronto. In 2011 his second feature film ‘Oslo, August 31st’ premiered at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard program, and went on to play Toronto and Sundance. His next project, ‘Louder than Bombs’ (2015), was shot on the other side of the Atlantic with an international cast, and in 2017 he returned to Europe to direct the supernatural drama ‘Thelma’.
