Icelandic film Agnes Joy received its world premiere in South Korea at the Busan International Film Festival last Saturday. The film will be premiered in Iceland on October 17. RÚV reported first.
Agnes Joy follows the middle-aged Rannveig (Katla Margrét Þorgeirsdóttir), who is bored by her suburban life. When a well-known actor moves in next door, both Rannveig and her rebellious daughter Agnes (Donna Cruz) become interested in him. The film also features performances from Þorsteinn Bachmann, who plays Rannveig’s husband, and rapper Kristinn Óli Haraldsson (known as Króli).
Rannveig and Donna were both present at the premiere, where they gave out autographs and posed for selfies after the screening. Icelandic film A White, White Day will also be screened at the festival.
