[DE KUTHOER]


In Dutch director Ivo van Aart's smart and sassy revenge satire, Femke Boot (Katja Herbers, THE AMERICANS, WESTWORLD) is a successful columnist for a large news organization whose frank opinions on everything from the controversial "Black Pete" holiday tradition to the merits of soft-boiled eggs make her a popular — and polarizing — media figure. But as the climate becomes ever more divisive and anonymous harassments, accusations and death threats continue to flood her social media channels, Femke gradually becomes addicted to the vicious messages, hate-scrolling continuously through the nasty comments. Not only is this constant trolling affecting her motivation to write new articles, but she also needs to finish writing the novel she promised to deliver her publisher. One day, mad as hell and unwilling to take it anymore, Femke snaps. The ensuing act of revenge eases and inspires her — enabling her to write like never before and setting off a string of increasingly violent feats of righteous vengeance. Official Selection, 2020 Fantasia, FrightFest, Chicago, Telluride Horror Show film festivals and AFI European Union Film Showcase.
