Finnish Film Screening
Thursday, February 11, 2016

5:30pm -- Ballantine Hall 305

In honor of Valentine's Day, our next Finnish movie is a romantic comedy 8 päivää ensi-iltaan (8 Days to Premiere, 2008) directed by Perttu Leppä. It is a romantic story about Vilma (Laura Birn), a shy prompter at a theater production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, who must take on the role of Juliet when the leading actress (Noora Kuustonen) injures herself a few days before the opening night. A romance brews between Vilma and Lauri (Mikko Leppilampi), who plays Romeo, but Vilma's hurtful past is casting a shadow on her performance as well as on her romance with Lauri.

You can watch the trailer here (unfortunately without English subtitles):
