‘Call Girl’ to open Stockholm

Marcimain's political thriller stars Pernilla August

STOCKHOLM — Political thriller “Call Girl” will open the Stockholm Film Festival, which runs Nov. 7-18.

Pic is the feature debut of Mikael Marcimain, whose TV drama credits include “The Laser Man” and “How Soon Is Now.” The film stars Pernilla August and is shot by d.p. Hoyte van Hoytema (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”). It was produced by Mimmi Spang and is being sold by Trust Nordisk.

Based on a 1970s Swedish political scandal, the pic links underage prostitution with top politicians. The film adopts the realistic tone of Francois Truffaut’s “The 400 Blows,” and acknowledges inspiration from “All the President’s Men,” “Three Days of the Condor” and “Serpico,” according to the fest.

Other fest titles previously announced are Cao Hamburger’s “Xingu,” Ava Duvernay’s “Middle of Nowhere,” Benh Zeitlin’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and Srdjan Dragojevic’s “The Parade.”
