Sick of Myself
(Rated Unclassified 15+)
Signe (Kristine Kujath Thorp) is a stylish, insecure millennial working a dead-end job in Oslo, Norway. When her vapid artist boyfriend Thomas (Eirik Sæther) finds overnight success with sculptures made from stolen designer chairs, their already competitive relationship intensifies. With a compulsive drive to make herself the centre of any situation, Signe orders an illegal Russian pharmaceutical online and embraces its disfiguring side effects.
Why You Should See This Film
A wickedly funny satire of toxic relationships and contemporary narcissism, Kristoffer Borgli’s Sick of Myself (Cannes, Un Certain Regard) is a razor-sharp “unromantic comedy” from the producers of The Worst Person in the World. Counting John Waters, Ari Aster and Michael Cera among its devoted fans, Sick of Myself is the kind of film you’ll be talking about for weeks afterwards, and is simply one of the darkest, funniest, most outrageous films to come along in an age.
