Haut et Court has acquired French rights to Danish filmmaker Malou Reymann’s debut film A Perfectly Normal Family from New Europe Film Sales and plans to release it in mid-2020.
The film is about a girl whose relationship with her father changes when he transitions from male to female. It has been selected for the Big Screen Competition in Rotterdam with other festivals expected to be confirmed soon.
A Perfectly Normal Family was presented as a work in progress at Goteborg in January and was selected as part of the C EU Soon showcase at Rome’s MIA in October.
A Royal Affair’s Mikkel Boe Følsgaard plays the father, and the cast also features Kaya Toft Loholt, Rigmor Rante and Neel Rønholt.
