Once the brightest teacher at his high school, Martin (Mikkelsen) has fallen into a seemingly permanent funk. He’s barely present in his classes and his marriage is slowly dissolving. Along with three male friends he decides to follow an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.
Directed with insight and energy by Vinterberg, and driven by a great ensemble cast, Another Round is a boisterous and sobering comedy about how men deal (and don’t deal) with aging — though underlying it all is a shared, unnerving suspicion they may never have actually grown up in the first place.
Another Round will screen on general release from Fri 2 Jul.
This special preview screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with director Thomas Vinterberg.
