Persona Non Grata

Drama Comedy


 

A Danish woman moved to the city and wrote a book based on her experience of being bullied at school. She's home for the wedding of her brother to the bully.

The plot setup is intriguing enough to make "Persona Non-Grata" worth watching. Domestic situations are rich in undisclosed tensions, and families have long memories. Add to that a culture and class clash between the disparate worlds of rural and city life and press play. However, this is no game, as the authentically drawn and endlessly bickering characters seek a fair hearing. There are many familiar elements including the psyche of the bully. Who started it?
