“We only drink during work hours. Like Hemingway.” So goes the mission statement of four drink-loving friends in Denmark, who decide to study the effects of consistently increasing their daily alcohol consumption. In the U.S., the science is left to the experts; in Northern Europe, thinkers get involved—“There’s this Norwegian philosopher. He claims humans are born with a blood alcohol content that’s 0.05% too low.” These four men are ready to experiment: “I think it’s an exciting idea.” “So do I.” “Let’s do it.” The latest from film director Thomas Vinterberg (Far From the Madding Crowd), and starring Mads Mikkelsen, Another Round is a sad yet humorous tale of friendship, domestic life, and how much is too much. —J.V.
