Danish actress Sidse Babett Knudsen has made a return to film with the French new release 150 Milligrams (La fille de Brest).
The film is set in Brest, France, and follows lung specialist Irène Frachon who establishes a direct link between suspicious deaths and the consumption of a drug that has been on the market for thirty years. She stands up to the French health and pharmaceutical industry, uncovering the media scandal surrounding the commercialisation of a controversial medicine.
The film is inspired by true events.
Knudsen is best known for her leading role in the hit Danish series Borgen, which explores a prime minister’s rise to power.
150 Milligrams was released in the US back in April and is now being released around Europe.
