Love Is All You Need

Summary: Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia!) and Trine Dyrholm (A Royal Affair) star in this sparkling romantic comedy from Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier (In A Better World, After The Wedding), about two very different families brought together for a wedding in a beautiful old Italian villa.

Ida (Dyrholm) is preparing to take a trip to Sorrento with her husband Leif to attend the wedding of their daughter Astrid and her fiancé, Patrick. Arriving home early one day, Ida discovers Leif has been unfaithful and makes the decision to take the trip alone.

At the airport, Ida accidently collides with brooding widower Philip (Brosnan) whom she discovers to be Patrick’s father. Cold and business-focused, Philip is unimpressed with the happy-go-lucky Ida. Forced to travel together, the two find it hard to tolerate each other and are relieved when they arrive at the villa.

Surrounded by lemon groves, cypress trees and the romance of Italy, the perfect backdrop for Astrid and Patrick’s wedding, the young couple’s future happiness is suddenly jeopardized and Ida and Philip are brought together to try to set things right.

A Royal Affair

Summary: Winner of the Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at the Berlin Film Festival, and written and directed by Nikolaj Arcel (co-writer of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) A ROYAL AFFAIR is an epic tale of a passionate and forbidden romance that changed an entire nation. Denmark, 1766, and Caroline Mathilde is married to the mad and politically ineffectual King Christian VII. Ignored by the wild King who chooses to live scandalously, Caroline grows accustomed to a quiet existence in oppressed Copenhagen. When the King returns from a tour of Europe accompanied by Struensee, his new personal physician, Queen Caroline finds an unexpected ally within the kingdom. The attraction between the two is initially one of shared ideals and philosophy, but it soon turns into a passionate and clandestine affair. Committed to the ideals of the Enlightenment that are banned in Denmark, Struensee convinces the King to assert his previously untapped power to remove the conservative political council and implement drastic changes to Danish society. As the Court plot their return to power and the downfall of the Queen and Struensee, the consequences of their affair are made clear and the entire nation will be changed forever.
