Director Camilla Strøm Henriksen
Starring Ylva Bjørkaas Thedin, Maria Bonnevie, Sverrir Gudnason
Jill has been forced into early adulthood by the collapse of her parents’ marriage and the subsequent depression that has sent her mother Astrid into torpor. Astrid, a once celebrated artist, now only gets out of bed to hit the bottle. In this haunting character study, Henriksen seamlessly moves the story from social drama, through fantasy elements, to grandiose lifestyles, depending on which character has authority over the scene.

Can we have part 2?
Very moving , brilliant acting from the kids.
Poor old Mama!
Gloomy but interesting.
Loved it , a touch of the Scandi Noirs!
Depressing but well acted.
Disjointed and not credible.
That story happens every day in Runcorn.
Attractive people, miserable story.
Excellent but an agonising watch.
Title a misnomer should be called ” Adults Today.
