Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Christina Rosendahl’s World War II drama “The Good Traitor” (“Vores mand i Amerika”), starring Ulrich Thomsen (HBO’s The New Pope, Academy Award winner In A Better World, Festen) in theaters and VOD on March 26, 2021.
The film, also starring Burn Gorman, Ross McCall, Zoë Tapper, Denise Gough, Pixie Davies, Henry Goodman, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, and Nicholas Blane, is the story of Henrik Kauffmann, who was the Danish ambassador to the USA at the start of World War II, and who fought for the freedom and independence of Denmark after the Nazis occupied the country.
April 9, 1940: Denmark is invaded by Nazi Germany with demands for immediate and unconditional surrender. The government surrenders after a few hours and begins cooperating with the Nazis. On the other side of the Atlantic is Denmark’s ambassador to the United States of America, a daredevil and a man of the world – Henrik Kauffmann, who is willing to put everything on the line. He refuses to follow the German directives and engineers a rebellious plan to defeat Hitler and give the Danish people their freedom back.
