Based on a story by Jo Nesbø, JACKPOT is a darkly comic, Coen Brothers-inspired riff on greed, betrayal and (dis)honor among thieves, with a Nordic twist. When four coworkers at a Christmas tree factory win a big payday from a soccer betting pool, allegiances quickly dissipate and a vicious battle over how to divide the money ensues. Directed by Magnus Martens. (Norway, 2011, 86 minutes)
