    Beyond is a poignant story about a young woman’s dramatic childhood, her grief and the struggle to move on.

    Leena, 34, has fought all her life to let go of her grief over her dark childhood. One morning just before Christmas, Leena receives a phone call from a hospital in her childhood hometown telling her that her mother is dying. This news takes her on a journey to face her mother for the first time in her adult life. She is now forced to deal with her past to be able to move on.

    Pernilla August makes her directorial debut with her take on the bestselling novel Svinalängorna by Susanna Alakoski

The Bottom Line:

When one of Sweden’s most revered actresses (Pernilla August) directs one of Sweden biggest contemporary stars (Noomi Rapace), it’s hardly surprising that this powerful – and harsh – family drama boasts acting of sheer quality throughout. August’s debut film was Sweden’s nomination for an Oscar in 2012.
