About the film:
A Scandinavian box-office hit, this lustrous drama chronicles the life of popular Swedish actress and jazz singer Monica Zetterlund. Following her journey from small-town telephone operator in the 1950s to hard-won stardom, the film tracks the performer’s tumultuous life, from the clubs of New York and Stockholm to stage spectaculars, TV specials, film roles, and collaborations with jazz greats, including legendary pianist Bill Evans—all the while, leaving a trail of failed love affairs and broken dreams. Swedish with subtitles.
