CERTAIN PEOPLE

Directed by Levan Akin
FEATURE NARRATIVE 105 Minutes International Premiere
FILM GUIDE CERTAIN PEOPLE
Six bohemian thirtysomethings gather at their friend Katinka's idyllic summer house at the height of the season to celebrate her birthday. A bunch of accomplished, upper-class artists and musicians, the group merrily discusses current gallery exhibits over dinner when they are surprised by the arrival of Katinka's wayward twin brother Joel, with his latest conquest Linda in tow. At first, the liberated comments of this brusque, blonde game show hostess are entertaining and fresh, but as the evening wears on she stretches the group's invisible social rules of hospitality. Contempt grows and long-buried prejudices flare up with new vigor, though thankfully daylight brings a fresh perspective to the night's proceedings.

The nuanced, earnest performances from these up-and-coming Swedish starlets promise bright futures on international screens. In his feature film debut, Levan Akin brings an ethereal, mysterious romanticism to the look and feel of Certain People, assuring its characters will question whether the lives they lead may be too good to be true.
