After losing her mother in a car accident, 17-year-old Ida moves in with her estranged aunt. Her new home, which she also shares with the aunt's three grown sons, is loving and safe. But as Ida soon discovers, the business this family runs outside their home is far more dangerous than they let on.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

70

The New York Times by Beatrice Loayza

So committed to maintaining an enigmatically sinister atmosphere, the film fails to build out the many compelling issues it raises about toxic masculinity and familial gaslighting. Nevertheless, some inspired confrontations, and a commanding performance by Sidse Babett Knudsen, who plays the hot-and-cold matriarch, Bodil, makes “Wildland” an absorbing and highly watchable psychodrama.

Empire by Ian Freer

Wildland is an original, a compelling gangster film unusually driven by women and told in stark, measured strokes. A unique calling card for director Jeanette Nordahl.
63

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

First time feature director Jeannette Nordahl puts us in Ida’s shoes and makes us ponder her uncertain fate just enough to make Wildland work.

The Observer (UK) by Wendy Ide

This lean Danish drama is not wholly original – David Michôd’s Animal Kingdom is an obvious comparison – but it’s a tense, suspenseful piece of storytelling and a showcase for a treacherously mercurial performance from Knudsen as the fearsome matriarch.
