Mom Squad

Charlotte Sachs Bostrup, Denmark, 2019

99 min.DK/FeatureComedy

New mom Line is living the high life in Hong Kong with her husband, Bjørn. When Line discovers Bjørn’s infidelity she leaves him in fury and heads for the last place Bjørn would ever think to look – Line’s tiny hometown in provincial Funen. What is intended to be a short stay becomes a journey back to Line’s roots, her resentful ceramic artist cousin Maja and the encounter with an effervescent group of mothers. Bjørn cuts off Line from all financial means and threatens to take away her son. Meanwhile, she struggles with mundane practicalities and her preconceived notions of life in the countryside. Together with the mom squad and her resentful cousin, Line takes on the battle with porridge, vomit, debt and threats from her adulterous husband.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
