Susanne Bier's Danish drama A Second Chance is heading to Britain and France.
French distributor KMBO and Britain's Vertigo have picked up the latest from the Oscar-winning director from sales outfit TrustNordisk.
A Second Chance stars Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau as a Danish cop who decides to kidnap a child from two junkie parents. Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Maria Bonnevie also star.
Bier co-wrote the screenplay to A Second Chance with her long-time collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen, the screenwriter on Bier's Oscar winner In a Better World.
The film had its world premiere as a special presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival and screened in competition at San Sebastian earlier this week.
Nordisk Film Distribution will bow A Second Chance in Denmark on Jan. 15.
