Even though it took Susanne Bier's drama Serena starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence a long time to get to theaters, it looks like his TIFF-selected thriller A Second Chance will have a much more satisfying fate. "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars in the film about Andreas, a Danish cop living a happy life with his wife and their newborn baby, who tries to save another infant from a neglectful home by kidnapping the child from its troubled parents. Soon Andreas' happy life begins to crumble, leaving him with some tough decisions. This looks like a pretty powerful dramatic thriller. Watch!
Here's the UK trailer for Susanne Bier's A Second Chance from YouTube:
And also, here's a trailer for the film from when it premiered at TIFF last year:
A Second Chance is directed by Susanne Bier (Serena) and written by Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better World). Veteran police officer Andreas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is happily married to the beautiful Anne (Maria Bonnevie), who has just given birth to their first child. Andreas's comfortable life is then thrown into sharp relief when a domestic disturbance brings him back in contact with an abusive junkie whose girlfriend Sanne has also just given birth. But the baby is left lying in its own filth for hours, prompting a bold, morally questionable decision. The film debuts in the UK on March 20th but has no release date in the US yet.
Being exposed to a lot of ugly situations can and does make some people to react emotionally and irrationally... But, then again, you don't mess with other people's life, they have to solve their own problems. In short, the whole story looks credible but still somehow overstretched to me. So, I'm not quite convinced in this ...

Child abuse and neglect is so ever present. Hearing about dog theft/smuggling recently on a giant scale is quite mental too. Makes you proud to be human. My wife loves a miserable Scando-drama, it seems right up her street.

This guy has real chops outside of GoT. I am interested.
