Lina Leandersson to star in Tenderness, first feature by Sofia Norlin
Swedish actress Lina Leandersson, leading of Let the Right One In, will star in Swedish director Sofia Norlin's feature debut Tenderness
Swedish actress Lina Leandersson, who played the lead in Thomas Alfredson's Let the Right One In, will star with Sebastian Hiort af Ornäs in Swedish director Sofia Norlin's feature debut Tenderness, which has started principal photography March 15 in Kiruna, Sweden's northernmost city. The movie is the first winner of the €500,000 scholarship for new women film-makers, launched last year by the Stockholm International Film Festival, including cash, services and a Nordic-Baltic distribution contract with Sweden's NonStop Entertainment. According to Cineuropa, the pic is produced by Olivier Guerpillon for DFM Fiktion and will film on location until mid-June and will have its world premiere during this year's Stockholm Film Festival before its release in spring 2013.
Tenderness is the depiction of young people taking the first steps towards building a new society, while the ground is literally shaking under their feet: Kiruna is situated on a mine, which is its pounding centre as well as a force that is threatening to tear it apart. Leandersson just finished her work on Estonian director Kadri Kousaar's European Psycho; Hiort af Ornäs had his screen breakthrough in Swedish director Babak Najafi's Sebbe (2010).
