The Worst Person in the World is a modern comedy-drama about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary life. It chronicles four years in the life of Julie (Renate Reinsve) a young woman who navigates her love life and struggles to find her career path, hoping for a new perspective as she takes a realistic look at who she really is.
But as she explores new professional avenues and embarks on new relationships in her search for happiness and identity, she may come to realise that some life choices are already behind her.
Norwegian director Joachim Trier returns with another modern twist on a character portrait of contemporary life. The Worst Person in the World is the final part of the Oslo Trilogy, beginning with the film Reprise (2006) and continuing with Oslo, August 31st (2011). Winner of the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival, this smart, funny, coming-of-age drama examines one woman's quest for love and meaning in the modern world.
