IN A BETTER WORLD
HÆVNEN
Denmark, Sweden 2010
DIR Susanne Bier
CAST Mikael PersbrandtTrine Dyrholm
Anton lives in 2 worlds. As a doctor in an African refugee camp, he treats victims of civil war and negotiates with the local warlord. Back home in an idyllic Danish village he is under pressure to deal with the macho father of a local bully who is making his son's life at school miserable. In a better world, how should one respond to violence? Director Bier (After the Wedding, Brothers, Things We Have Lost in the Fire) has teased us with moral speculation before. Winner of the Academy Award For Best Foreign Language Film.


But... conflicting with the Western Edge production of The Glass Menagerie at the City Centre Stage.
