Swedish artist Anna Odell invites us to a school reunion with a twist. What happens when old hierarchies and truths are questioned from an unexpected voice? 'The Reunion' investigates how far too far really is. Having not been invited to her own reunion, Odell uses the first half of the film to imagine how the evening might have unfolded with her in attendance. Traversing the border between fiction and reality Odell plays herself, with actors portraying her former classmates. In the second half she confronts her former classmates with her imagined gathering, seeking a discussion about their common past. But how willing will they be to face their youthful transgressions?
Sweden - land of sanity?

Was really looking forward to this film as Sweden has produced some really good stuff. However, I'm afraid I lost the will to live with this one. Found it difficult engage or identify with the characters ......never made it to the end.
