Beyond, the feature debut of actress-turned-director Pernilla August starring Noomi Rapace has won the Nordic Council Film Prize, Scandinavia’s top cinematic honor. Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren, the honorary chair of the film prize jury, announced the winner at a press conference in Denmark Monday. Based on the best-selling, semi-autobiographical novel by Susanna Alakoski, Beyond is the story of a girl growing up in 1970s Sweden to alcoholic parents. In addition to the Nordic Council honor, which will be presented Nov. 2, Beyond has already collected a stocked trophy case of awards, including best director and best supporting actress (for Outi Maenpaa) at Sweden’s equivalent of the Oscars, the Guldbagges, best film and best actress honors at the Sao Paulo film festival and the International Critics’ Week honor at the Venice Film Festival in August.
