The Northman

2 hours 17 minutes | Rated R16 (Graphic violence, cruelty, animal cruelty & sexual material)

Set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century, a Nordic prince sets out on a mission of revenge after his father is murdered.

From visionary director Robert Eggers comes THE NORTHMAN, an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder. With an all-star cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe.


Eggers recreated, with obsessive accuracy, the world of the medievals in order to lower us into a myth that feels primordial and strange, as if it’s tapping into something in the back of our minds that we’ve always known but half forgotten. Vox

It certainly feels authentic — there’s a sense of constant otherness to what we experience on the screen, yet with no sense of contrivance — and that’s what matters. Everything feels strange, savage, implacably other. Boston Globe

The Northman is gripping cinema of the sort that we get too little of today, when too often a director’s vision is diluted by box office imperatives and the lure of four-quadrant appeal. ReelViews

It’s an impressive piece of time travel. Eggers succeeds in conjuring up a world governed exclusively by blood feuds and territorial imperatives. And Skarsgard, who helps initiate the production, makes a magnificently realised Amleth. Sydney Morning Herald

The Witch, The Lighthouse and The Northman all reflect their director’s penchant for exacting attention to detail and hard-earned madness. The Ringer
