Erik, a lecturer in architecture, inherits his father’s large old house in Hellerup, north of Copenhagen. His wife Anna, a well-known television newscaster, suggests that they invite their friends to come and live with them. In this way she hopes to evade the boredom that has begun to seep into their marriage. Before long, a dozen women, men and children move into the country house, make collective decisions, engage in discussions and go swimming together in the nearby Øresund strait. Their fragile equilibrium threatens to come undone when Erik falls in love with his student Emma and the young woman moves into the house. Fourteen-year-old Freja, daughter of Erik and Anna, aloofly observes these goings-on and seeks her own way.

Born in Frederiksberg, Denmark in 1969, Thomas Vinterberg graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 1993. A co-founder of the Dogma 95 movement, he directed „Festen“ (The Celebration), the first film conforming to Dogma rules, in 1998. The film won international awards including the Jury Prize at Cannes. After several English-language productions, including Dear Wendy in 2005, he returned to Danish cinema. In 2012 „Jagten“ (The Hunt) was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe and won awards including the prize for Best Screenplay at the European Film Awards.
