Troubled young Christian has known little stability since the death of his mother, and has become distanced from his father, who spends much of his time away on business trips.When he strikes up a friendship with the quieter Elias, whose father is also often absent, he finds a target for his anger by helping his new friend strike back at schoolyard bullies.When Elias's father returns from a trip to Africa, he attempts to convince the boys that arguments can be settled without recourse to violence, but it's not always easy to practice what you preach. Multi-award-winning director Susanne Bier (Brothers, After the Wedding) delivers an enthralling and intelligent examination of male reaction to injustice, and gets a string of fine performances from an excellent cast.
