Best Foreign Language Film (Official Entry Iceland)
In 24 hours, forty-something professor Jon will be getting married to a student half his age. But before he can make it to the ceremony, he ll have to deal with a massive debt to his mother-in-law to-be, his extremely drunk best man, the logistics of a remote Icelandic island, an increasingly hostile reverend, and the guilt-ridden memory of his emotionally unstable first wife. Can love survive one final night under the midnight sun or is the road to happiness paved with blissful ignorance? Hilmir Snær Gudnason (101 REYKJAVÍK) stars in this internationally acclaimed comedy/drama from writer/director Baltasar Kormákur (JAR CITY) that The Calgary Herald calls a hilarious, darker version of Woody Allen or Alexander Payne.
