Oslo, August 31st

Recommended

2012 | 95 min. minutes | Rated NR

Oslo, August 31 is a quiet movie—and an honest, unsentimental portrayal of the fallout of addiction. Anders (Anders Danielsen Lie) is a 34-year-old junkie with two more weeks in rehab. On August 30, he is given leave from the facility because he has a job interview. Oslo follows Anders over the next 24 hours: he visits old friends, misses a connection with his sister, blows the interview, and ends up at a party. His temptation threat levels keep escalating.
