New Scandinavian Cinema: A SECOND CHANCE


Andreas is a promising young detective with a lot on his plate. He and his wife Anne are struggling with their newborn son who cries constantly, and Andreas must also try to rein in his recently divorced partner Simon, who is drinking too much. Called to a domestic disturbance, the detectives discover a drug-addicted couple with a young baby suffering terrible neglect, but there is seemingly nothing that can be done to save the child from horrible fate. When Andreas is faced with a personal tragedy, however, he makes a decision that will have severe moral and ethical repercussions. Tension-filled and heartbreaking, A SECOND CHANCE poses wrenching ethical questions while retaining sharp focus on the conflicted individuals skewed by life’s dilemmas. (105 min.)

A SECOND CHANCE screens Saturday, October 24 at 8:45pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of our New Scandinavian Cinema series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
