A FORTUNATE MAN
W E D 1 5 M A Y | 7 P M
Auteur Bille August, a film-making icon and recipient of the Palme d'Or, the Academy Award and a
Golden Globe, draws on writer Henrik Pontoppidan’s influential coming-of-age Danish novel Lykke
Per (re-issued as A Fortunate Man) to present this enthralling historical drama. In the late 19th
century, Per Sidenius, an ambitious young man from a devout family in Western Denmark rebels
against his father and travels to Danish capital Copenhagen to study engineering. In the big city, he
falls in love…or does he really?
