Screen Daily (exclusive):TrustNordisk closes deals for Dragon Award winner ‘Unruly’

By Screen Daily / Wendy Mitchell



TrustNordisk has closed four new deals on Malou Reymann’s Unruly, the winner of the prestigious Dragon Award at Goteborg earlier this year. 

The film has now sold to Former Yugoslavia (Cinemania Group), Benelux (September Film), Estonia (Estinfilm) and Taiwan (Cineplex Development Co.).

It is the second film rom Reymann after Rotterdam Big Screen winner A Perfectly Normal Family.

Unruly is about the Sprogø Women’s Institution in the 1930s, when “morally feeble” girls and women were sent to the island to become more compliant. The story focuses on Maren, an unruly 17-year-old who refuses to conform, and the spark she ignites in Sørine, who had been dutiful at the institution for six years.

 The film premiered in Toronto’s Discovery section before screening in Zurich and Goteborg.

Unruly was released last week in Denmark, triggering the Danish government to make a long-awaited official apology to the women who were sent to the Sprogø institute.

Emilie Koppel and Jessica Dinnage lead the cast, which also features Lene Maria Christensen, Anders Heinrichsen and Danica Curcic.

 As with A Perfectly Normal Family, Matilda Appelin produces for Nordisk and The Danish Film Institute supported the production.

Reymann wrote the script with Sara Isabella Jønsson.
