The Golden Cinema presents Academy Award winning In a Better World

Kicking Horse Culture is presenting its fifth Film Kicks movie, In a Better World, on Feb. 23.

In a Better World will be playing at the Golden Cinema on Thursday Feb. 23.

The fifth show in the Film Kicks series is set to be shown at the Golden Cinema when In A Better World plays on Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.

Directors Susanne Bier is one of the most prominent Danish film directors working today.

Bier’s Oscar nominated After The Wedding (2006) and the US-produced Things We Lost In The Fire (2007), starring Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro, were both hits at the domestic box office.

With Brothers, she raised troubling questions about the First World’s relationship with the Third.

After the Wedding pursued this subject further, contrasting the conflicting demands of the domestic and the societal.

In A Better World was a Special Presentation at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival  and winner of the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, explores similar terrain while offering a devastating critique of masculinity.

Anton, played by Mikael Persbrandt, is a doctor who commutes between his home in an idyllic town in Denmark, and his work at an African refugee camp.

Trapped in these two very different worlds, he and his family are faced with conflicts that lead them to difficult choices between revenge and forgiveness.

Anton and his wife Mariann, played by Trine Dyrholm, who have two young sons, are separated and struggling with the possibility of divorce.

Meanwhile their 10-year-old son Elias (Markus Rygaard) is struggling with his own problems because he is being bullied at school.

This pain continues until he is defended by Christian (William Jøhnk Nielsen), a new boy who has just moved from London with his father, Claus (Ulrich Thomsen).

In a Better World sets out to explore what happens when we encountered in trying to control our society while struggling with our personal lives.

People are reminded to bring cash at the door with tickets costing; Non-Member $12; Adult Member $10; Student $5. All prices include HST. The final film of Film Kicks for this year will be shown on March 15. This first feature by UK director Jim Loach Oranges and Sunshine will be seen at the Golden Cinema starting at 7:30 p.m.
