Icelandic film “Woman at War”, the long-awaited follow-up to “Of Horses and Men” by writer-director Benedikt Erlingsson, is coming to North America! The film was recently acquired by Magnolia Pictures and is quickly making strides in the film industry for its brilliance. It was recently awarded the SACD prize, given annually by the French Society of Dramatic Actors and Composers to promote and encourage emerging film authors.
ABOUT WOMAN AT WAR
The plot begins when the main character, Halla, who is played by actress Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, declares a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. She is prepared to risk everything to protect the pristine Icelandic Highlands that she loves until there is an unexpected turn of events: an orphan finds her way into Halla’s life and changes it forever.
The recent picture has Magnolia’s President Eamonn Bowles raving, “WOMAN AT WAR is a blast.” And The Variety’s Jay Weissberg suggested, “Is there anything rarer than an intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice?”
