The Danish coming-of-age story crime thriller Wildland marks the critically lauded directorial debut of Denmark’s Jeanette Nordahl.

Following the tragic death of her mother, 17-year-old Ida (Sandra Guldberg Kampp) falls into the care of her estranged aunt Bodil (Sidse Babett Knudsen, Limbo) and Bodil’s three grown sons (Joachim Fjelstrup, Elliott Crosset Hove and Besir Zeciri). Ida initially finds comfort in their home, which is filled with physical tenderness and a strong sense of unity.

But the darker reality of her family’s criminal way of life and toxic dynamics slowly pushes her to accept violence, addiction and intimidation as normal. It isn’t until the situation spirals out of control that Ida realizes that love and violence have become impossible to separate. Doubting if she really belongs with this loyal, but dangerous matriarch and a brotherhood on the edge, Ida faces the same question that her mother once faced before her; just how far are you willing to go for your family?

Certified Fresh at 93% at Rotten Tomatoes, Film Movement’s DVD and digital release of the film also includes the Danish short Riders, directed by Jesper V. Rasmussen.
