Mads Mikkelsen reunites with Thomas Vinterberg in this spirited and thought-provoking Oscar-winning drama that asks if a regular tipple is the key to unlocking the best version of yourself.

Four friends, all teachers are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions at school or at home, they embark on an experiment: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness.

Underscored by delicate and affecting camerawork, Vinterberg’s spry script, co-written with regular collaborator Tobias Lindholm, uses this bold premise to explore the euphoria and pain of an unbridled life.

At its heart is Martin, playing a once brilliant but now world-weary shell of a man, the ever surprising Mikkelsen delivers a touching, note-perfect performance – including one of the most joyful and memorable onscreen moments to grace the big screen.
