Haugerud’s film examines the dramatic aftermath of a tragic event in a middle-class suburb of Oslo. During a break at school, 13-year-old Lykke, the daughter of a prominent Labour Party member, seriously injures her classmate Jamie, the son of a high-profile right-wing politician. When Jamie later dies in hospital, contradictory versions of what actually happened risk making a difficult and traumatic situation even worse. Throughout the film, Liv, the school’s principal and the secret lover of Jamie’s father, must find the strength to confront a community in distress and her own highly conflicted emotions.
Meanwhile, Maria Sødahl’s drama Hope [+leggi anche:
