Our take

For the magnificent conclusion to her autobiographical epic, Joanna Hogg constructs an intricate emotional labyrinth through the formative years of an artist in search of her voice. Starring Honor Swinton Byrne, this dazzlingly reflexive masterwork draws memoir and fantasy into iridescent reverie.
