Norway 2015 100 mins. In Norwegian

Based on Gunnhild Øyehaug’s celebrated feminist novel Wait, Blink, Flikke’s debut film is an energetic and funny portrait of three women struggling with the patriarchy as well as themselves: Sigrid is a young woman aching to find her voice and live up to her ideals; Trine, a very pregnant performance artist with a bad attitude, is running out of options; and Agnes, an aging author with a 40-year case of writer’s block, wonders about the son she gave up for adoption. As the musings and paths of these vibrant women weave together, intersect, and fall away, unconventional wisdom takes wing. “A sunny ensemble comedy and pan-generational showcase for Nordic female filmmaking talent.”—The Hollywood Reporter. In Norwegian with English subtitles.
