Our take

The first in Joachim Trier’s masterful “Oslo Trilogy” is an electric and affecting dual portrait of two writer friends whose ambitions are challenged by the trials of life. Saturated with punk playfulness, Reprise explores the tantalizing promise—and peril—of fulfilling your creative aspirations.
