Acclaimed actress Pernilla August (A Rational Solution, PSIFF 2010) makes her writing/directing debut with this powerful drama about self-deception and denying the past. Beyond offers a compassionate look at the children of alcoholics, with insights into how such a childhood leaves emotional wounds that take time to heal. Although the material may sound familiar, August‘s simultaneously restrained, gut-wrenching, and hopefuI film provides a new and moving take on the topic and features blistering performances from Noomi Rapace and Tehilla Blad (both known for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo). On the morning before Christmas, Leena, 34, receives a phone call telling her that her mother is dying. This news takes her on a journey to face her mother for the first time in her adult life. Leena has fought to let go of her grief over her lost and dark childhood as the daughter of bitter, hard-drinking Finnish immigrants. Now she is forced to deal with her past to be able to move on. Winner: Audience Award, Critic’s Week Venice Film Festival; Best Actress, Sao Paolo Film Festival.
