Food Club / Madklubben (2020)

Comedy, Drama 1h 38m 2020

AVAILABLE 19 NOVEMBER - 26 DECEMBER

The story of three lifelong friends, very different women, with one thing in common; They are in the autumn of their lives and they all feel how ruthless old age can be. Marie is abandoned by her husband on Christmas Eve, and her entire identity as part of a happy family crumbles. Berling is the eternal “bachelor” who outwardly denies her age and lives the sweet life, but in the backdrop she is affected by a complicated relationship with her daughter. Vanja, on the other hand, lives in the memories of her late husband and has difficulty moving on.

Following a bombshell revelation on Christmas eve, the three women decamp to Puglia in Italy to attend a food course over New Year. It is the catalyst for revitalization and an opportunity to redefine themselves. By supporting each other, it turns out to be a life that has much more to offer than they ever dreamed of.

“Aging gracefully is so rare on the big screen, thus why Food Club is such a refreshing film.” Sean Patrick, Geeks.

“Growing older, it says, is no less scary or painful or exciting whether you’re 16 or 60. Food can help, friendship helps more.” Colin Fraser, moviereview

“The actors have a wonderful rapport, giving off vibes that they really are longtime friends. It also feels good to see a film featuring women over 70 who are portrayed as living their best lives. It’s inspiring, actually.” - Louisa Moore, Screen Zealots.
