Having faith is easy, but maintaining that bond with and belief in a higher being is where the real test lies. And it's a cinematic theme that's almost as old as the medium itself, but writer/director Katrine Gebbe finds a fresh spin on it with "Nothing Bad Can Happen." Debuting at the Cannes Film Festival last in year in the Un Certain Regard category, it marked a promising start for the director's first feature, and now it's coming stateside for those intrigued by thrillers underscored by big ideas.

Nothing Bad Can Happen

Having faith is easy, but maintaining that bond with and belief in a higher being is where the real test lies. And it's a cinematic theme that's almost as old as the medium itself, but writer/director Katrine Gebbe finds a fresh spin on it with "Nothing Bad Can Happen." Debuting at the Cannes Film Festival last in year in the Un Certain Regard category, it marked a promising start for the director's first feature, and now it's coming stateside for those intrigued by thrillers underscored by big ideas.

Based on a true story, and starring Julius Feldmeier, Sascha Alexander Gersak, Annika Kuhl, Swantje Kohlhof, Til Theinert, Daniel Michel, and Nadine Boske, "Nothing Bad Can Happen" tells the tale of young Christian punk Tore, who falls into living with a dysfunctional family. And it's here where the trouble begins, when the man of the house initiates a series of games, determined to test the young's man beliefs. And as you'll see in the exclusive clip below, words and physical threats are all part of the package facing Tore.

Winner of the German Film Critics Association Award for Best Feature Film Debut and Best Actor, "Nothing Bad Can Happen" is now playing in Los Angeles and opens in New York City on July 3rd. Watch below.
