Winner of the 2011 Oscar and Golden Globe award for Best Foreign Film, In A Better World is a gripping drama about revenge and the power of forgiveness from internationally acclaimed director Susanne Bier (After The Wedding). From a war-torn refugee camp to the deceptively idyllic Danish countryside, two fragile worlds are inextricably linked by conflict and violence. Anton is a doctor whose work bridges the divide between these two dramatically contrasted lands and who must confront an unavoidable moral dilemma. His son Elias, the victim of school bullies, forms a friendship with the troubled Christian, but this soon transforms into a dangerous alliance. In A Better World is a powerhouse piece of filmmaking that asks demanding questions about violence and the difficulty of "turning the other cheek".
