Her auto-fictional fourth theatrical feature, The Souvenir, was made just shy of her 60th year: It’s a leap back in time but with new, meta implications, hints at how her sense of formlessness was formed. The movie is never not fascinating. Hogg’s protagonist, Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne), is a 24-year-old rich girl with a Knightsbridge apartment who wants to make a film about a boy growing up by the grotty docks of Sunderland, south of Newcastle. Quizzed by authority figures skeptical of her choice to stray so far from her own experience, Julie speaks of her insularity, her class privilege, her need to cultivate a socially conscious aesthetic. In her apartment, she pores over black-and-white footage of working-class boys in a schoolyard, leaning into her manual typewriter (it’s the 1980s) and struggling to concoct a story line. You’re not meant to laugh at her pretensions, only to register her distance from the world. One day her building is shaken by an IRA … [Read more...] about Is Sometimes Formless, But Always Fascinating

"I had nothing in the tank today. He wanted to play, I wanted to have a gin and not move for several hours. He won. Because I'm a mum. That's what's expected.

Wonderful moments filled with love. But I'm more knackered now than when I did Strictly!! Hats off to stay at home mummies everywhere. You're phenomenal.

I struggle with mum guilt a lot, as I know many of you do." … [Read more...] about Catherine Tyldesley unveils son Alfie’s epic playhouse – and we’re impressed
You mentioned that the Sunderland idea in the film is one of your actual projects. I’m curious what your other student films were like.The Tragedy of Passion about an eccentric, self-destructive fashion designer loosely based on Charles James. And then Film Dress, which is about a dress made out of film. Didn’t go very well. I didn’t finish it. But I ended up putting a version of that film dress in my graduation film, which was called Caprice, which I finally made in 1986, a year after this relationship fell apart. And then before that and at the end of The Souvenir there’s The Rehearsal, which I made with Tilda. It was about an actress rehearsing the part of Isabella in Measure for Measure. It wasn’t finished, partly because of what happened with the relationship ending.
