Adapted from the bestselling novel by Norwegian author Per Petterson, OUT STEALING HORSES stars Stellan Skarsgård as a grieving widower whose encounter with an old acquaintance from his youth causes him to recollect his own coming of age in 1948. Confronting feelings of guilt from events long ago, he summons wisdom from the past to help him deal with the grief of the present. The Norwegian entry for best international entry at this year’s Oscars, the film combines first rate performances with the alluring backdrop of the harsh Norwegian countryside.
“An ambitious film that examines memory and consciousness through the perspective of an older man who’s determined to escape from memory and to constrict his lived experience.” – Glenn Kenny
