About the film
PURE (Till det som är vackert), Lisa Langseth, Sweden 2010, 97 mins, UK Premiere
Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair, Anna Karenina) plays troubled 20 year old Katrina who comes from a broken home in Stockholm’s suburbs. Tormented by her past, she seeks solace in a newfound passion for classical music after finding herself at a concert in Gothenburg. Katrina has always lived on the edge and soon she is swept up in a whirlwind of the senses as she embarks on a journey filled with desire, dishonesty and ultimately a dangerous affair.
