The County

1h 30m Comedy, Drama 2020

A quintessentially Icelandic serio-comedy from the director of “Rams” (2015) about one woman’s fight against a monopolistic co-op stifling the livelihoods of farmers in a remote valley near Reykjavik.

This David vs. Goliath story plays out in a windswept hamlet, where a widowed farmer (Arndis Hronn Egilsdottir, in a quietly defiant performance) is grieving the unexpected death of her husband while going up against the male dominated agriculture industry.

“The County blends elements of heartfelt tragedy with absurdist comedy, conjuring a humanist portrait of life in which community and loneliness coexist in a landscape of contradictions – geographical, personal, and political…” — Mark Kermode, The Guardian
