Headhunters (film)

Norwegian crime thriller writer Jo Nesbo has been rightly gaining in popularity over the past few years, helped no doubt by increasing interest in the genre that includes other Scandinavian authors such as Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson of "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" fame. Now, in a similar situation to the Girl films, while an American production company was going after the rights to make a film of Nesbo's Headhunters in English, the Norwegian version is already out there and will be coming to Seaford Community Cinema next week!

Executive recruiter Roger (Aksel Hennie) uses intimate knowledge of his premium clients to steal their original art works to fuel a hedonistic life style. His beautiful trophy wife Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund) runs an art gallery heavily subsidised by Roger in order to give the perfect appearance to his life. Roger's flair for recruiting the right man for the job leads him to a suave new prospect, Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who is also the owner of a rare and expensive old master. Is Clas the answer to all Roger’s money problems?

Barn Theatre, Fri 6th Dec, 19.30.
Tickets £6, members £5, available online, in person from Seaford Tourist Office, or in person on the door if there's any left.
