Living with a roommate is one thing, but living with several can get complicated. The drama and interpersonal dynamics that unfold when many people get together under one, free-spirited roof takes center stage in director Thomas Vinterberg‘s (“The Celebration,” “Far From The Madding Crowd“) latest film, “The Commune.”
Starring Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, Helene Reingaard Neumann, Lars Ranthe and Fares Fares, the movie takes a look at ambitious group of adults who establish an idealistic commune, only to watch it crumble in the face of personal scandal. Here’s the official synopsis:
Erik and Anna are a professional couple with a dream. Along with their daughter Freja, they set up a commune in Erik’s huge villa in the upmarket district of Copenhagen. With the family in the center of the story, we are invited into the dream of a real commune; we participate in house meetings, dinners and parties. It is friendship, love and togetherness under one roof until an earth-shattering love affair puts the community and the commune to its greatest test.
