Dancer in the Dark

Winner of the Palme d'Or and Best Actress (Björk) at Cannes (2000)!

Selma (Björk) is a Czech immigrant, a single mother working in a factory in rural America. Her salvation is passion for music, specifically, the all-singing, all-dancing numbers found in classic Hollywood musicals. Selma harbors a sad secret: she is losing her eyesight and her son Gene stands to suffer the same fate if she can’t put away enough money to secure him an operation. When a desperate neighbor falsely accuses Selma of stealing his savings, the drama of her life escalates to a tragic finale. One of Lars von Trier’s early masterpieces, this Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee also stars Catherine Deneuve, David Morse, Joel Grey, and Udo Kier.

Denmark, 2000, 140 minutes, Rated R, Directed by Lars von Trier
