CGiii Comment

Failed freelance journalist gets a temp position in the town of Alingsås and discovers new sides of her father in a reality-based drama with a wonderful Rolf Lassgård in the title role.

How does it feel when your father turns out to be a woman? The aspiring journalist Hanna (Hedda Stiernstedt) finds out that things aren’t that easy. She is frustrated, pre-occupied with herself, and even if she claims to be open-minded, she doesn’t know how to deal with her cozy priest of a father buying dresses and wanting to be called Marianne. Flanked by a cast including Lena Endre and Nour El Refai, Rolf Lassgård gives us a masterfully warm portrayal of how the most popular priest in the small town decides to follow his heart. Freely based on Ester Roxberg’s well-regarded autobiography “My Father Anni-Christine.”
