Issue 80 of Little White Lies is presented to you in KineRama – an age-old cinematographic process which we have lovingly revivified for these fully-illustrated pages. We imagine you’ve got a few questions stacking up in your mind, so allow us to both anticipate and answer them.
When you receive this issue, you’ll find a special image decoder securely attached to the inside front cover. For 15 years, LWLies has prided itself on being a film magazine powered by illustration. This edition is no different, only the illustrations now move. Wherever you spot the KineRama logo, slowly move your decoder across the illustrations and watch as they spring to life. Please note: the only way you can experience the full, overwhelming joys of KineRama is by holding a physical copy of LWLies 80 in your hands.
Inside this issue…
The Art of Vulnerability
The Souvenir is a remarkable movie memoir that refreshes tawdry notions of ‘coming of age’ in cinema. Its director, Joanna Hogg, and star, Honor Swinton Byrne, open up to Sophie Monks Kaufman.
Tom Burke’s stunning performance as the enigmatic Anthony in The Souvenir suggests we’ll be seeing a lot more of the great Tom Burke. Adam Woodward meets him.
