BEHIND BLUE SKIES

DIRECTOR: Hannes Holm - SWEDEN

Martin, a 17-year-old growing up in mid-1970s Sweden, is a good-hearted boy with a troubled home life. When he’s given the opportunity to live and work at a resort on the Stockholm archipelago for the summer, he leaps at the chance. There he is taken under the wing of restaurant manager Gösta who seems to appreciate Martin’s innocence, even as he recruits him for work in illegal sidelines ranging from hookers to drugs to worse. “Holm’s clever coming-of-age comedy has real heart and soul, with young Bill Skarsgård (son of Stellan Skarsgård) delivering a star-making turn as Martin and Josefin Ljungman shining as Jenny, his restaurant co-worker and budding love interest.”—Variety. (111 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Adam & Eva (97), Shit Happens (00), The Reunion (02), Every Other Week (06), Wonderful and Loved By All (08).

With support from the Embassy of Sweden, Washington.
