The Swedish drama series BEARTOWN opens today, October 18, in all HBO Europe territories, including Portugal. This is a series, based on the best-selling novel by Fredrik Backman, and is directed by Peter Grönlund and starring Ulf Stenberg, Aliette Opheim, Tobias Zilliacus, Miriam Ingrid and Oliver Dufaker.
In five episodes, the series explores the hope that unites a small community, the secrets that separate it, the courage it takes for a person to go against the group, and the consequences of how we raise our boys.
BEARTOWN is slowly losing ground to the constantly growing trees that surround it, but with the junior ice hockey team trying to win the national semifinals, all residents’ dreams now fall on a group of teenagers. . This heavy burden becomes the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a traumatized young woman and a city in turmoil. Charges are laid and, like the waves of a lake, they sweep through BEARTOWN, sparing no one.
