Description

If three's a crowd, nine's a meltdown!

When a large house is bequeathed to a Danish couple, Anna, the wife, sees an opportunity to explore her wilder side by living communally. At first, the playful group skinny dips, and a place of emotional honesty and peace seems within reach. But as the novelty wears off and everyday life exposes human flaws, the ensuing conflict sends Anna—and her marriage—to the brink. Another brilliant film by director Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, The Celebration), The Commune is an emotionally charged, riveting dive into the depths of love, jealousy, and possession. – Pia Chamberlain
