‘The Worst Person In The World’ Trailer: Joachim Trier’s Latest Stars Cannes Best Actress Winner Renate Reinsve

Renowned filmmaker Joachim Trier usually takes about four years between movies. Since his last one was 2017’s Louder Than Bombs, he’s right on point for his latest, The Worst Person in the World, which recently had its world premiere at Cannes.

The Worst Person in the World concludes Trier’s “Oslo Trilogy” following 2006’s Reprise and 2011’s Oslo, August 31st. The story follows four years in the life of a woman as she deals with a messy personal and professional life, and takes a hard look at the kind of person she really is. And as you can probably guess from the title, she’s made some choices she isn’t too proud of. Haven’t we all?

Leading the cast is Renate Reinsve, and there’s real buzz surrounding her right now. Her performance in the film earned Cannes’ Best Actress award, a tremendous accomplishment for someone who is relatively unknown.

NEON will open The Worst Person in the World soon, but has yet to give it a hard date. I’m assuming it will be this fall, in time for the awards season race.

The Worst Person in The World is a modern dramedy about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It chronicles four years in the life of Julie (Reinsve), a young woman who navigates the troubled waters of her love life and struggles to find her career path, leading her to take a realistic look at who she really is.
