Oslo, August 31st (2011)

Director: Joachim Trier. Cast: Anders Danielsen Lie, Hans Olav Brenner, Ingrid Olava. 95 min. Not Rated. Norway. Drama.

A former drug addict comes out of rehab, and embarks on a quest to regain his previous life and search for a prestigious job as a magazine editor. Very soon, he realizes the society is not forgiving, and he is quite alone. This is a very sad story which is likely not far from the bitter truth, but I can neither explain Ebert's four stars nor the movie's 98% on the Tomatometer.

PS: This is streaming on Netflix.
