HOLIDAY Unclassified 18+
A young woman’s beach holiday turns unthinkably dark in Swedish filmmaker Isabella Eklöf’s immaculately crafted feature film debut – a legitimately shocking depiction of male violence and power.
Nineteen-year-old Sascha is young, beautiful and living it up at Danish mobster Michael’s luxury villa on the Aegean Sea. But Michael is a man of ever-present violence and as his behaviours become increasingly crueler and manipulative, Sascha finds herself turning towards the comparative kindness of Dutch yacht owner, Thomas. But when you’re powerless, can you ever truly find sanctuary?
With the confronting, morally ambiguous Holiday, Isabella Eklöf firmly establishes herself a bold new voice in world cinema. Brilliantly controlled, utterly unafraid, Holiday is a film of quiet intensity and deep perception, whose seething force will leave you reeling.
"[A] viciously auspicious debut … impresses with its clinical construction and still, penetrating gaze into male violence." – Variety
Contains high-impact sexual violence
