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 twelve 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.

"Renate Reinsve delivers a standout performance."

— Jason Solomons, TheWrap

— Dave Calhoun, Time Out

"The story quietly washes over you until you realize you’re drowning in waves of acute emotions."

— Angelica Jade Bastién, New York Magazine/Vulture

"Unsentimental, brutally honest, and staggeringly complex in its execution, intelligent cinema like this is a rarity."

— Martin Carr, We Got This Covered

"It's a rich story that forgoes a traditional format, challenging the conventions of the industry. It's progressive, it's unapologetically feminist, and it's unforgettable."

— Sarah Bea Milner, Screen Rant

"The Worst Person in the World is a wildcat in a world of domesticated dramedies and romantic comedies. Trier has made one of the best movies of this year or any year."

— Ray Lobo, Film Threat

"Effervescently, swooningly romantic, yet filled with the deepest sorrow, capturing all of the very real feelings of falling in love, falling out of love, and of the most painful and bittersweet losses."

— Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

"The Worst Person in the World swerves from bustling comedy to erotically charged romance to bittersweet drama, executing each tonal shift seamlessly even as plot twists seem to come out of nowhere."

— David Sims, The Atlantic

"The film’s opening quirky comedy routines give way to something much richer––a startlingly observant, sharp, romantic, provocative, and poignant view of millennial culture and how life comes at you fast."

— Ed Frankl, The Film Stage

"Without ever slipping into sentimentalism, The Worst Person in the World understands the warts-and-all beauty of what it means to truly live a life to the fullest, stumbling, striving and messing up along the way."

— Caroline Siede, Fox 10 Phoenix

"Joachim Trier’s scintillating Oscar contender from Norway, led by a captivating new star in Renate Reinsve, sets a new gold standard for romantic comedy just before it sneaks up and hits you like a shot in the heart."

— Peter Travers, ABC News

"The Worst Person in the World, Trier’s stirringly sophisticated masterpiece, unrolls in piecemeal manner, but once fully extended is a tapestry of unfeigned experiences sowed with the thread of truth, in all its painful ambivalence."

— Carlos Aguilar,

"Occasionally you see a movie that just satisfies on all fronts — the performances, the direction, the whole package. Even less occasionally you see one that does all that and moves you, too. “The Worst Person in the World” is one of those."

— Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

"On the surface, it’s a simple enough premise: a young woman transitioning into adulthood, trying to find her place in the world. But in the hands of Norwegian director Joachim Trier, The Worst Person in the World is at one level a social satire about love, identity and relationships, and at the same time, a warm and deeply poignant look at the imperfect way life can creep up on us."

— Karen Gordon, Original-Cin
