April 30 - May 28
Directed by Maria Sødahl
2019, Norway, 125 min
Norwegian with English subtitles

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $10.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Norway’s official submission to the 2021 Academy Awards® for Best International Feature. Hope is a superbly acted story about long time partners Anja, a modern dance choreographer and her partner Tomas, a theatre director and their large family of children and stepchildren. As Christmas approaches Anja receives a serious diagnosis of a terminal illness and it forces on her a complete re-evaluation of her life. “Anja and Tomas are thrown into a crash course in mutual trust, and eventually a joint struggle, to deal with this unexpected and premature death. By getting to know each other anew, they unconsciously become the principal characters in a love story where they finally learn to truly love each other after a long life together.” (European Film Awards)

Reviews

Maria Sødahl’s perceptive, heartfelt HOPE richly deserves all the attention it’s gotten at festivals and award ceremonies… Teases out the unexpected byways where hope is not just crushed but nurtured… The rewards here are great, not just for the multi-layered screenplay but the impeccable performances by Andrea Bræin Hovig and Stellan Skarsgård.
– Jay Weissberg, Variety
