Description

Like the Australian hit Animal Kingdom, this female-driven crime drama offers a radical meditation on family, loyalty, the need to belong and the seductive cycle of delinquency and corruption.

It also introduces a stunning new writing-directing talent in Jeanette Nordahl. Following a car accident, which kills her mother, 17-year old Ida moves in with her estranged aunt (an amazing Sidse Babett Knudsen) and her aunt’s grown sons. The home is filled with physical tenderness and love, but outside of the home, the family leads a violent and criminal life. When an unforeseen murder pressures the family and their loyalty to each other, tension builds as love and violence become impossible to separate. Ida is faced with the same question her mother faced before her: What are you willing to sacrifice for your family? Hers is a legacy that can feel impossible to break no matter how hard she tries. (Alissa Simon)
