Agenda: ‘Reprise,’ a Film That Takes an Exhilarating Look at Young Novelists

When it came out in May, David Edelstein couldn’t say enough nice things about Reprise, the debut film from Norway’s Joachim Trier that centers on the lives of two young aspiring novelists: “The film is an exhilarating weave of childhood remembrance, projection, literary digression, and impish commentary.” But the movie doesn’t alienate with its postmodernism, he says, “You feel as if you’re pinging around in the characters’ imaginations.” [Reprise; Miramax; Out Sept. 2; $22.31; Buy]
