International PREMIERE

Sweet Virginia

Part of the American Dreams Strand


This darkly engrossing and at times brutal neo-Western features a stand-out performance by Jon Bernthal (the Punisher in Marvel’s Daredevil). He stars as a quiet outsider who runs a motor lodge in a small Alaskan town and who is reluctantly drawn into a cycle of secrets and violence after a bloody burglary-homicide shocks the town. Beautifully directed by Jamie Dagg (whose debut film River showed at EIFF last year) and reminiscent of early Coen Brothers work, the film is peppered with striking and complex performances.
