Thompson on Hollywood
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Susanne Bier’s In a Better World from TrustNordisk, which has sold the film to more than 30 countries. I am a huge fan of Bier's Brothers and After the Wedding, both also co-written by Bier and screenwriter Anders Thomas Jensen. This is the intensely emotional drama of two Danish families. Sisse Graum Jørgensen produced the film for Zentropa Entertainments in co-production with Memfis Film International, DR, SVT, Film i Väst and Trollhättan Film.

There are many strong women filmmakers in the world, from Bier to Julie Taymor (The Tempest). Why have Bier and Taymor never been selected for the competition in Cannes, which included no women directors this year?
