Cinematical has a review of the new film by Lone Scherfig.

Basically Scherfig is like the Dutch answer to Nora Ephron, except funnier, riskier, more intelligent, more talented and with more than one good film to offer.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

Huh. You mention on your blog, but not here, something along the lines of "Finally, a new film from the director of 'Italian for Beginners.'" I knew she'd released another film after "Beginners," but looking at the IMDB listing, it shows only a U.S. festival date. That movie DID play locally here in D.C., and I don't think it was a one-time festival screening. I'm almost certain it got a theatrical release, although it didn't last long.

EDIT: Correction. IMDB DOES say that the film has a limited theatrical release in the States, beginning March 12, 2004.

Links to our threads on Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself (2002) and An Education (2008? 2009?). We don't seem to have one on Italian for Beginners (2000).

BTW, "Scherfig is like the Dutch answer to Nora Ephron" could explain why Wilbur fell kind of flat for me. Even if Scherfig and her films are actually Danish rather than Dutch.
