Applause is one of those films that sucks you in from the very beginning and can hold an audience's attention until the end credits. At first, I thought the movie would be difficult to follow because of the Danish subtitles, however that was not the case. The main character, portrayed by the amazing actress, Paprika Steen, is very convincing as a mother and actress trying to separate her career roles from her personal life. Your heart really goes out to her as you sympathize with the struggles she is facing to turn her life around. The rest of the cast is very talented and did a wonderful job supporting such a movie as well. I am thankful I saw this film and am eager to see the entire cast in future projects. Applause is definitely a must-see!!
