Silja Hauksdóttir’s mother-daughter drama Agnes Joy is a universal story of family dynamics and teenage rebellion. Rannveig is frustrated with all aspects of her small-town life. She hates her work at the family business, her marriage is stagnating and she fights daily battles with her rebellious 18-year-old daughter, Agnes Joy. When well-known actor Hreinn moves in next door, Rannveig is given a boost, but events take a turn and the family is torn apart. Set amongst the beauty and vibrancy of Akranes and Reykjavik, the film is a heartfelt depiction of the disintegration of a family.
