Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired US rights to Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round from TrustNordisk.
The deal is announced before the film’s world premiere as part of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday. After Toronto, the film screens in competition at San Sebastian and then also screens at the BFI London Film Festival. The film was also selected for the Cannes Label 2020.
The deal was negotiated between Peter Goldwyn, president at Samuel Goldwyn Films, and TrustNordisk MD Susan Wendt. Nordisk will launch the film in Danish cinemas on Sept 24.
Written by Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm, the film centres on four high-school teachers who test a theory that they will work and live better by maintaining a constant level of alcohol in their blood. Their initial results are positive with classes and results improving; however, as they continue the experiment the results become more extreme.
The Hunt star Mads Mikkelsen leads the cast, alongside Thomas Bo Larsen, Lars Ranthe, and Magnus Millang.
