Rose

February 12, 2024 2:00 PM

ROSE is the story of two sisters, Inger and Ellen, and how their relationship is challenged on a highly anticipated coach trip from Denmark to Paris. When Inger announces her struggles with mental health to the group, the sisters are faced with pity from some and discrimination from others. ROSE is a film about love and care for each other, in spite of our differences, as much as it is a film about not judging a book by its cover. Written and directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo).

A good road movie is expected to do more than just cross distance; by film tradition, it also involves personal growth and revelations. Few films have fulfilled those expectations better than the recently released Danish comedy-drama Rose. Monica Reid/Far Out Magazine

The writer-director, Niels Arden Oplev, based the film in part on his own experiences, and the movie keenly illustrates how stigma surrounding mental illness hurts neurodivergent people and their families. Natalia Winkleman/The New York Times

ROSE is a Danish film certain to capture the hearts of any serious filmgoers --- anchored by the absolutely wonderful portrayal by Sofie Gråbøl as Inger. David Kaplan/Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Gråbøl is superb throughout, recognising Inger as a complicated individual who has a lot more going on than just her illness. JennieKermode/Eye For Film
