The second in Lars von Trier's 'American' trilogy, after 'Dogville' is shot in the same theatrical style, and features Bryce Dallas Howard in the Nicole Kidman role. Having left her hometown Grace and her dad (Willem Dafoe taking the place of James Caan) wander into a gated community still operating under the tenets of slavery, though the practise has been outlawed years before. Grace is horrified by the brutal and commonplace persecution, but is she the one to provide guidance towards democracy? Once again von Trier brings his uniquely European (and controversial) perspective to American culture. Lauren Bacall and Danny Glover co-star.
