PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE
Time to reach for the Icelandic knits for this earthy comedy from the director of Rams about a widowed farmer who squares up to local corruption.
Inga ekes out a bleak, careworn existence on an remote farm with her husband Reynir. Mired in debt and exhausted by harsh, physical labour, her isolation becomes absolute when she finds herself suddenly on her own. Uncovering shady dealings by the neighbourhood co-operative that push her further into a corner, shunned by her own community, she channels her grief and anger into fighting against injustice. Inga’s methods of resistance are sparky and ingenious and supply a strong injection of visual humour into this stirring tale, rooted firmly in the stern landscape of rural Iceland.
Director: Grímur Hákonarson
Starring: Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir, Sveinn Ólafur Gunnarsson, Þorsteinn Bachmann
