2006, Park Circus/Miramax, 105 min, Norway, Dir: Joachim Trier

Erik (Espen Klouman Høiner) and Phillip (Anders Danielsen Lie) grew up sharing a passion for literature and both completed their first novels in their early 20s. While Phillip's book was accepted by a major publisher and became a best-seller, Erik's book earned a sheaf of rejection slips. The harsh glare of the celebrity lifestyle caused Phillip to suffer a nervous breakdown, while frustrated Erik spends more time with his pretentious compatriots. Trier earned a Discovery Award at the Toronto International Film Festival for this witty and remarkably assured feature debut.
