Academy Award-winning scriptwriter and director, Anders Thomas Jensen’s new feature Riders of Justice (Retfærdighedens ryttere) premieres in cinemas across the country on November 19.
Similar to his previous films, the new dark comedy will feature Mads Mikkelsen in the lead along with Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Lars Brygmann, Nicolas Bro and Andrea Heick Gadeberg. The cast also includes Gustav Giese and Omar Shargawi.
The story revolves around Markus, a deployed military man who has to go home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. It seems to be plain bad luck – but it turns out that it might have been a carefully orchestrated assassination, which his wife ended up being a random casualty of. Riders of Justice is written and directed by Anders Thomas Jensen and produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Sidsel Hybschmann for Zentropa. Catch the trailer here.
