Preview: Another Round (12A) + Recorded Q&A with Thomas Vinterberg

A still from the film Another Round

Mads Mikkelsen reunites with Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) in this Oscar-winning drama that asks if a regular tipple is the key to unlocking the best version of yourself.

Four friends, all teachers at various stages of middle age, are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, they embark on an audacious experiment: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness. Underscored by delicate and affecting camerawork, director Vinterberg’s script uses this bold premise to explore the euphoria and pain of an unbridled life.

At its heart is Martin, an unappreciated tutor, husband and father. Playing a once brilliant but now world-weary shell of a man, Mikkelsen delivers a touching and compelling performance in this thought-provoking film.
