The Heiresses

Allowed 98 minutes 2018 6.9

In this award-winning drama, we meet the two wealthy heiresses Chela and Chiquita, who have lived together for decades. But a debt that is seen as a fraud means that Chiquita ends up in prison and Chela is forced to leave her safe life and start standing on her own. Chela starts driving a taxi and in addition to the rich women she drives around, she also meets Angy, a young and vibrant woman who manages to get the very shy and withdrawn Chela to start living. In SvD, Jon Asp writes that the film is a "captivating depiction of a woman's awakening in an environment where money and closeness give birth to one another in different ways, between the supremacy of the upper class and the more tangible tenderness of the service society." The Heiresses is one of the most prized films on film festivals, with over 30 awards worldwide.
