U.S. Nordic fans – our favourite film of last year, Heartstone, is coming to VOD and DVD!

The LGBT coming-of-age story has been picked up by US distributor Breaking Glass, ScreenDaily reports.

Heartstone is set in a remote fishing village in Iceland where teenagers Thor and Christian experience a turbulent summer as one tries to win the heart of a girl and the other discovers feelings towards his best friend.

Breaking Glass plan a limited theatrical release followed by video-on-demand and DVD in the third quarter of the year.
