Love proves to surpass all things in 2013 Swedish award-winner and box office success, Nobody Owns Me. Swedish thespian Mikael Presbrandt, who starred in 2010 Oscar-winner In a Better World and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, took home the Best Actor Award at the Guldbagge Awards 2014, for his role as a divorced and alcoholic father. Based on true events, Hasse battles with his addictions threatening to push him away from the one person that loves him – Lisa, his daughter. Capturing the social and political environment of the 1970s in Sweden, Nobody Owns Me paints a picture not only of alcoholism, but also of the era’s fading working class ideals. With a narrative which is split into three distinct time periods in Lisa’s life, the film tells the story of a child’s undisputed love and loyalty to a father who continually fails to live up to his responsibilities despite his best efforts. Nobody Owns Me airs first on CinemaWorld on May 18, at 9:00 PM.

Starring Ola Rapace (Skyfall) and, in her debut performance, popular Swedish singer and songwriter Lykke Li, Tommy will premiere on CinemaWorld on May 4, at 9:00 PM.
