In this highly anticipated biopic starring singer and actor Adam Pålsson, which opened at number 1 on the box office in Sweden this year, Oscar-nominated director Hannes Holm (A Man Called Ove) tells the story of one of the greatest composers of our time, his strong bond to his brother Kenneth, and a turbulent, dramatic and all-too-short life that touched an entire nation and defined a generation of pop music through its love, pain, and hope.

Directed by Hannes Holm (Sweden, 2018).
