Winner · Audience Award · World Cinema Dramatic · Sundance Film Festival 

Denmark’s entry for the Best International Feature for the 2020 Academy Awards, Queen of Hearts follows Anne (Trine Dyrholm, The Commune SWIFF’18), a high-flying lawyer, living in a beautiful modernist home with her two daughters and physician husband, Peter (Magnus Kreppe, The Girl Who Played With Fire). Yet when Gustav (upcoming talent, Gustav Lindh), Peter’s troubled teenage son from another relationship, comes to live with them, Anne forms an intimate bond with Gustav that jeopardises her perfect life. What initially seems like a liberating move for Anne soon turns into a disturbing story of power, betrayal, and responsibility with devastating consequences.

Driven by a powerful performance by Trine Dyrholm Queen of Hearts won the Audience Award (World Cinema Dramatic) at Sundance as well as the Best Nordic Film, Best Acting and Audience Awards at the Göteborg International Film Festival.

"The go-for-broke performances of Dyrholm and Lindh give it a specific, unusual tension — like the feeling you get when you’ve over-tightened a corkscrew and know the matter around it is about to crumble." - The New York Times
