A reunion of childhood friends at a remote chalet in the French Alps soon turns into a desperate struggle for survival as they get cut off from rest of the world and a shocking dark secret from the past surfaces.
Based on the Swedish novel "Störst av allt" by Malin Persson Giolito. After a school shooting in Stockholm's wealthiest suburb Danderyd the seemingly normal 18 years old girl Maja is accused of murder. But during the trial details of her relationship with five other students, parents and a teacher are revealed. Is she really the murderer or just another victim?
This is superb filmmaking at all levels. The pacing was spot on and the story arcs were skillfully executed. The suspense is maintained throughout; the courtroom episodes were terrific. The actors, especially the lead and the lawyer were just great. In fact, all the actors delivered; no weak links. A must see for fans of drama. The sub-titles didn't bother me at all.
