Sif Lina Lambæk - Denmark
2021 — Fiction — English subtitles — mikkel.smidt@filmbyen.dk

The classic late-teen country dance gone wild, is the framework in this coming of age portrayal of a young woman on the cusp of some serious decisions and potentially serious actions. The whole enchilada is wrapped in euphoric party mode, massive alcohol fumes, pumping beats on a packed dancefloor, and the smell of endorphins lies heavily and alluring in the air. Doubt, alcoholism, mothers and daughters, shame and expectations, are all stylishly and effortlessly balanced in a punked up and touching tale, which hits where it hurts and simultaneously leaves you feeling 10 feet tall.
