Lauded Danish director Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration, The Hunt) examines the fallout from the social upheavals of the 1970s through the microcosm of a Copenhagen commune. When Erik’s father suddenly passes away, he and his wife Anna must decide on the fate of his family home. Erik prefers selling, but Anna wants to try something new - experimenting with the up-and- coming trend of communal living. Energised by the era’s relaxed take on taboos, Anna and Erik assemble a diverse, motley crew of cohabitants and embark on their new adventure - but all is not what it seems and the couple soon discover that their marriage might be shaken at its very core.
