The Worst Person In the World
The Worst Person in the World has the most compelling, flawed, and deeply relatable characters to come out of 2021. The third film in director Joachim Trier’s Oslo Trilogy, the film follows Julie (Renate Reinsve), as she goes through multiple careers and relationship changes, as she fights her indecisiveness about what kind of life she wants to live. The film perfectly captures the transitional period of the late 20’s early 30’s and all the frustration that comes with it. Every character in this movie feels like they could have their own film dedicated to their journey, as they evolve and devolve before our eyes. I guarantee you’ve met these people and probably hated those people. Or, you are these people. Few films this year have been as relatable as this one, and Renate Reinsve’s delivers a charming, vulnerable performance that elevates the film. The Worst Person In The World is the perfect film to see in your mid-20s or 30s, as odds are, you’re going through the same existential journey as Julie.
