Tuesday Club

by Annika Appelin

A sudden change forces Karin to re-evaluate her life. With the help of friends, food, and passion, she refuses to accept that life has an expiration date and takes the second chance she is given.

Karin and Sten are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary with a huge bash. While their friends toast to their happiness, Karin discovers that Sten has been unfaithful. Karin has spent her life taking care of her husband and their daughter, and now everything is shattered into pieces. An old friend talks her into joining a cooking class led by Henrik, a renowned chef. In the hot kitchen, among spices, amazing food, old and new friends, more than one of Karin's long-lost passions are reborn. Suddenly, she finds herself in a position where she has to re-evaluate her life and the choices she has made. Should she give up her comfortable life to pursue her dreams and passions? And is it too late for love?

Press Quotes

”I envy all of you who still have this cinema experience ahead of you.”
“ … Then the filmmakers have the guts to make the film so damn gorgeous too! Every detail, down to the smallest coffee cup and scarf, is finely color-coordinated to match the beginning of autumn in the stylish Gothenburg shots that frame the story. So beautiful that Nora Ephron would have been proud.”

”Hot feelings among pots and pans in a charming comedy.”

”Finally a mature and adult romantic comedy!”

“A feelgood film about relationships and daring to take a plunge after 60. Nice and warm with lot of fun ‘girl talk'.”

“You have to be grumpy of rarely seen proportions for Tuesday Club not to make you happy.”
