Winner of the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film, and selected for Cannes’ prestigious Official Selection, Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round is one of the most buzzed-about films of the year. Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) is a middle-aged high-school teacher in a serious rut. His marriage is at a standstill, his students find him yawn-inducing, and he feels his best days are behind him. At a boozy birthday dinner with his three closest workmates, the group discuss a Norwegian psychiatrist’s theory that humans were born with a blood alcohol level that’s slightly too low. Curious, the four friends decide to test it out, and agree to drink steadily throughout their work week to maintain the “optimal” level of 0.05%.
