Danish thriller Loving Adults has risen fast to the top of Netflix’s weekly movie chart. Viewers are eager to discover what happens in this twisted love story that follows a seemingly perfect marriage as it begins to crumble.
The film revolves around Christian and Leonora, a husband and wife who seem to have it all until the wife discovers her husband has been having an affair. How can he consider leaving her after everything they’ve been through together? She’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize how much he needs her in his life.
This Danish-language feature film is based on a novel by Anna Ekberg and is directed by Barbara Rothenborg.
