Signe (Kristine Kujath Thorp) and Thomas (Eirik Sæther) are in an unhealthy, competitive relationship that takes a vicious turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. In response, Signe makes a desperate attempt to regain her status by creating a new persona hell-bent on attracting attention and sympathy.
“The sly pleasure of Sick of Myself is that Signe’s narcissism differs from the rest of ours more in degree than kind.” ~ Angie Han, Hollywood Reporter
“Takes a viscerally upsetting look at just how far an individual will go to gain attention in the new era of social-media addiction.” ~ Owen Gleiberman, Variety
