From Norway comes the 2018 biographical drama Sonja: The White Swan, which tells the story of Norway’s great figure skater Sonja Henie…or, rather, it focuses on Ms. Henie’s decision to head to Hollywood in the mid-1930s to become a movie star. This happened after her multiple Gold medal wins at the 1932 and 1936 Olympics.

Her first film, One in a Million, became a box office smash, selling the most tickets in the world in 1937. She becomes one of the richest women of her time, always surrounded by fans, lovers and family, and never has a moment alone. But then, as she got older, Henie’s spotlight began to fade, but she refused to quit…

Directed by Anne Sewitsky, the film stars Ine Marie Wilmann as the legendary Ms. Henie.
