Edge of Darkness

What do you do when fascists occupy your hometown? A Norwegian fishing village has been ground under the Nazis’ heel for two long years. Everyone has their own way of dealing with the pressure, some join the Resistance, others collaborate, and some just wish it all to go away. When a shipment of arms is rumored to be arriving, the moment of reckoning arrives. A propaganda film, yes, but somehow, with the excellent ensemble cast and our current state of the world, newly relevant. Sheridan’s Karen, unusual for a war film, is an equal partner, as vital to the war effort as her male counterpart, Flynn’s Gunnar.
