Joachim Trier directs Espen Klouman Høiner, Anders Danielsen Lie and Viktoria Winge in this Norwegian drama about two friends who are each young authors who struggle with the reaction to their first novels.
Starts with a real energising kick but ends up feeling like a literary circle American Pie. More often boorish rather than smart (though that may be the point) and it is hard to care about these poor little rich kids with their doubts and issues.
