In a Better World

From Denmark comes this Oscar-winning domestic thriller by filmmaker Susanne Bier (Brothers). A humanitarian doctor (Swedish star Mikael Persbrandt) volunteers in an African refugee camp, witnessing firsthand the brutal intertribal warfare. Returning home, he finds his sensitive young son falling under the sway of an emotionally damaged schoolmate. Bier uses this as a teachable moment to explore anger, violence, bullying and other issues inherent to the macho male psyche. In English, Danish, Swedish and Arabic with English subtitles. 119 minutes R.
