CMG Bringing Swedish Dramedy Home To American Audiences Next Month

Cohen Media Group is bringing a new overseas dramedy to American audiences in 2020.

The company recently announced it will release Britt-Marie Was Here Jan. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray.  The Swedish import made its domestic theatrical debut Sept. 20.  based on the best-selling novel by author Fredrik Backman, the story follows its titular character whose 40-year marriage to her husband has just ended after she discovered his infidelity.

In making a new start for herself, Britt-Marie finds herself having to coach a youth soccer team in her hometown of Borg, Sweden.  She has no experience in coaching and no knowledge of soccer, either.  Making things even more difficult is that the team is the pride and joy of Borg.  The result is a story that is both a journey of self-discovery for Britt-Marie and a familiar fish out of water tale in one.

Award Winner Pernilla August (Star Wars Episode I and II, the Best Intentions) stars in the movie’s lead role.

American audiences will be able to take in the movie thanks to English subtitles included in the Swedish-language movie.  the movie will retail for MSRP of $19.99 (DVD) and $25.99.
