The Great Silence
(Den Store Stilhed)

  •   Katrine Brocks
  •   Denmark

In this haunting tale of love, deceit, and forgiveness, Alma is a novice living a secluded life in a convent. As she is preparing to take her perpetual vows to become a nun, her estranged brother Erik comes knocking. After a stint in prison, the emotionally wrecked recovering alcoholic wants to claim what is rightfully his—a share of the family inheritance, which Alma has already gifted to the order. When it becomes clear that Erik wants to extract more from her than money, Alma must decide how far she is willing to go to ensure his silence and keep their dark shared history from coming to light. Dynamic, commanding performances by Kristine Kujath Thorp (Ninjababy) and Elliott Crosset Hove (Godland) propel this tension-filled drama toward an explosive conclusion.
