Mirjam (Josefine Frida Pettersen) is a 19-year-old dancing champion, a beautiful, confident young woman with the world at her feet. She’s also a devout believer and the leader of the youth group of a hip evangelical movement called The Freedom, where her stepdad Per (Nicolai Cleve Broch) is a charismatic pastor. All seems rosy for Mirjam, though she has to confront the doubts and demons she is struggling to supress. Addressing issues of faith and communication in the modern world, this cool, unsettling feature from Jorunn Myklebust Syversen is a supremely confident drama that dazzles and unnerves. MH
