An intoxicating look at midlife-crises, Another Round is the latest superbly crafted social study from director Thomas Vinteberg (The Hunt), which reunites him with renowned Danish star, Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt, Hannibal, After the Wedding) in what many critics are hailing as the finest performance of his career.

There’s a theory that we should be born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood, and that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students?  Initial results are positive, and the teachers’ little project turns into a genuine academic study. Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, some of the participants see further improvement and others go off the rails. It becomes increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fuelled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.

“Another Round is a breath of fresh air for anyone who has been starving for intelligent entertainment”
– Leonard Maltin

” A truly wonderful movie about trying to come to grips with life, anchored by terrific performances, infectious music, and a real understanding of the humming discontentment that all adults must learn to navigate in their own ways..”
– Vox

‘Drink, drinking or binge-drinking—there’s some of that too—can’t begin to convey the wild beauty and emotional depth of this film.’
