Netflix has announced the new Swedish Netflix comedy film One More Time, directed by the Student Academy Award-winning Jonatan Etzler. Hedda Stiernstedt (Beforeigners, The Restaurant) is starring as the lead, alongside Miriam Ingrid (Beartown), Elinor Silfversparre Fahlén and Maxwell Cunningham.
When 40 year old Amelia (Hedda Stiernstedt) is hit by a bus the night of her birthday she wakes up back in 2002, on her 18th birthday, with the chance to relive her best day and make her life the perfect vision of what she’d intended it to be. But when she starts to wake up again and again on this same day, she has to figure out the key to what she needs to fix, in order to literally leave the past behind and return to the present day.
Hedda Stiernstedt, starring as the lead character Amelia, says: “I am so excited for this project to come alive. The timing for a retrospect lookback on the early 2000s feels right and diving into that era is filled with so much joy. I’m working together with the talented Jonatan Etzler and a group of very gifted actors. We’re having a great time working together and I think that will be noticeable in the final result.”
The Swedish language comedy is written by Tove Forsman and Sofie Forsman (Young Royals, The Playlist) and directed by Jonatan Etzler who won a Student Academy Award for the short film Get Ready with Me. One More Time will be his feature film debut. The film is based on an original idea by Mikael Ljung and is produced by Eleonor Sager at Breakable.
One More Time will release globally on Netflix in 2023.
