The Good Son (’11)


Angela, 29, blows into a small town in the Finnish countryside, dazzling the locals with her exotic dancer troupe, sequinned swirls and megawatt smile. After a nasty encounter backstage she leaves town just as fast, only now with her half-sister Anna, 21, in tow. Anna gladly exchanges a dreary life as a bakery drudge for an adrenaline-fueled existence on stage. Happy to be closer to her glamorous older sister, she embraces the world of exotic dancing. But neither the champagne bubbles nor sparkly makeup can protect her as she tries blackmail to save Angela from the trouble that keeps following her. Dark forces from the underworld test their newly found sisterhood. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, “It’s the offstage dance between the sisters, and the shifting interplay of affection, admiration, distrust and resentment, that fuels this absorbing journey through genre territory.”
