Under The Sun Premieres at The Smith Opera House

Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film last year, Under The Sun (Under Solen) is a lush and sensuous film about love, trust, time and the quiet depth of loneliness. Set in the strikingly beautiful, sun-drenched rural countryside of Sweden, the story finds Olof, a lonely, secretly illiterate egg farmer, taking out a help wanted ad: “Lonely farmer, 39, own car. Seeks young lady housekeeper. Photograph appreciated.” Having lived alone since the death of his mother, Olof is looking for more than just a live-in maid. He finds the beautiful and elegant Ellen, who has a few secrets of her own. In Swedish with English subtitles, this unrated film is 118 minutes long. Under The Sun will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 3. Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. All seats on Thursdays are $3.
