Vicky Krieps and Tim Roth are Chris and Tony, an American filmmaking couple who retreat to an island for the summer to each write screenplays for their upcoming films, in an act of pilgrimage to the place that inspired Ingmar Bergman.

Both filmmakers are hoping to make progress on their respective scripts. Tony works with ease, while Chris’ process is more personal. Initially stymied by writing in Bergman’s home and sleeping in the room where Scenes from a Marriage was shot invites Chris to reflect on her own relationship. But a new screenplay idea soon emerges and Hansen-Løve opens up a second parallel story – Chris’ fictional one; Mia Wasikowska plays a young American filmmaker who attends a wedding on Fårö, looking to reconnect with her first love (Anders Danielsen Lie - The Worst Person in the World).

The result is a clever Russian-doll narrative, sumptuously realised by Hansen-Løve and her stellar cast.
