Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson; 2016; Iceland/Denmark; 129 min. in Icelandic with English subtitles
In a remote Icelandic fishing village, the landscape stretches out majestically and quietly, but just beneath the surface a storm is brewing. Teenagers Thor and Christian are always together, but the summer becomes turbulent when Thor gets a girlfriend and Christian struggles with his romantic feelings toward his best friend. As ominous clouds gather, the two begin to drift apart, and with their home lives in chaos, their need for acceptance and love turns desperate. This atmospheric coming-of-age feature dares to ask the question: What happens when a stifling silence is finally broken?
