Storyline

How far would decent human beings be willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjust? With "A Second Chance", Susanne Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen have crafted another startling yet moving drama about how easily we lose our grasp on justice, when confronted with the unthinkable, and life as we know it is hanging by a thread.

Trivia

This was model May Anderson's first acting role. Suzanne Bier met her at a party and cast her as Sanne. She resisted making Anderson audition because she thought the audition would be bad, but that Anderson would be right for the role. See more »

A goodish film
9 March 2019 | by whatithinkisSee all my reviews

I like looking at Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's face and this film affords LOTS of opportunities to do that. He does not disappoint. The story is far from believable, BUTTT is nonetheless entertaining and has twists and turns that are absorbing. Well acted, well directed. Sub-titles, but well done. And if you have Prime it's commercial free and sort of 'free.' Go for it.
