EVERLASTING MOMENTS, a moving and richly nuanced tale of a Swedish womans creative and emotional awakening at the turn of the 20th century, is the latest film from celebrated director and five-time Oscar®nominee Jan Troell (THE EMIGRANTS, THE NEW LAND). The film was a hit at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals and was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009. Based on a true story, EVERLASTING MOMENTS follows the story of Maria (Maria Heiskanen), who is married to an alcoholic and womanizing dockworker (Mikael Persbrandt). Her husband leaves the worries of family responsibilities entirely to Maria. Her situation is desperate until she meets a camera shop owner (Jesper Christensen) who encourages her to start taking and developing photographs. She soon begins to see the world in new ways that threaten her already perilous situation.
