The Promised Land

Play trailer

Nikolaj Arcel / DK, 2023 / 127 min.

Mads Mikkelsen plays an army captain founding a colony in the name of the Danish king in inhospitable 18th-century Jutland – a local chieftain declares war on him. Nikolaj Arcel’s western-style epic is a monumental, layered portrait of a man riven with contradictions.
