Winner of the 2011 Oscar & Golden Globe award for Best Foreign Film, IN A BETTER WORLD is a gripping drama about revenge and the power of forgiveness from internationally acclaimed director Susanne Bier (After The Wedding).
From a war-torn refugee camp to the deceptively idyllic Danish countryside, two fragile worlds are inextricably linked by conflict and violence. Anton is a doctor whose work bridges the divide between these two dramatically contrasted lands and who must confront an unavoidable moral dilemma. His son Elias, the victim of school bullies, forms a friendship with the troubled Christian, but this soon transforms into a dangerous alliance.
IN A BETTER WORLD is a powerhouse piece of filmmaking that asks demanding questions about violence and the difficulty of ‘turning the other cheek’.
Bonus features include a feature-length commentary with director Susanne Bier and editor Pernille Bech Christensen, an interview with Susanne Bier, deleted scenes, stills gallery and theatrical trailer.
