Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Fanny and Alexander actress Pernilla August makes an unforgettable directorial debut with the award-winning Beyond. It features a blistering performance from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Noomi Rapace as Leena, a thirty-something woman with a loving husband and two affectionate daughters. One day, Leena receives a phone call saying that her dying mother Aili (Outi Mäenpää) would like to see her. The two girls don’t even know that such a mother exists. As Leena reluctantly does her duty, the film explores the ghosts of her past and a childhood marked by alcoholism, violence and a desperate struggle to maintain the pretence of normality.
