How far would decent human beings be willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjust? With “A Second Chance”, Susanne Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen have crafted another startling yet moving drama about how easily we lose our grasp on justice, when confronted with the unthinkable, and life as we know it is hanging by a thread.
The trailer for A Second Chance has intense visuals, commendable cinematography, and well-structured acting. It is easy to come to this conclusion based on the footage provided in the two-minute fifteen-second clip. The trailer provides a generous time for this promotional video considering most trailers are under one minute.
A Second Chance has an interesting plot that features a tangled web of deception and betrayal. Susanne Bier creates a world in which criminals get treated unfairly and the one to uphold the law is criminal with his actions. The focal point of the developing conflict is a baby, a heartbroken mother and a sinister conspiracy by the kidnappers. It will interest to see how this plot develops.
Unlike most Thrillers, A Second Chance has a core social commentary on our perception of others. It is no surprise this film is an import, Hollywood remains stagnant with reboots, remakes, and regurgitation that innovative ideas such as this go under the radar.
