Aberdeen | Chicago Reader


Persuaded by her dying mother, a lawyer with a thing for cocaine goes to Norway to get her alcoholic father and bring him to the hospital in Scotland. The journey, supposed to be a short flight, turns out to be a road trip through hell—all three family members have been estranged for years. Sumptuously hued in its emotional and visual tones, this drama is also a fairy tale, its plot contrivances beautifully justified by its minimalism: each stop along the route seems to be a ghost town, populated by only the few antagonists necessary to speed the main characters on their way, emotionally as well as geographically. Hans Petter Moland wrote the screenplay with Kristin Amundsen; with Stellan Skarsgard and Lena Headey. 113 min.
