Danish drama The Legacy comes to UK DVD and Blu-ray in February

5 February 2015

Following the death of progressive internationally-renowned artist Veronika Grønnegaard, The Legacy [Arvingerne] traces the story of Veronika's four adult children, whose distinctive upbringing has affected their lives in very different ways. The division of Veronika's estate marks the beginning of a journey into a complex set of secrets and lies for her four children.

The series paints a portrait of a Danish family and their children, coming to terms with the challenges of change and the traces of violent upheaval from their past.

Directed by the internationally acclaimed actor and director Pernilla August and created by author Maya Ilsøe, The Legacy is produced by the leading European production house DR Fiktion – the BAFTA and International Emmy Award-winning production unit behind the drama series The Killing and Borgen and stars Trine Dyrholm, Jesper Christensen, Lene Maria Christensen, Carsten Bjørnlund, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Marie Bach Hansen and Trond Espen Seim.

Described by Gerard O’Donovan and The Daily Telegraph as having "Intensity, intrigue, superb acting and a sheen of effortless style and chilly sophistication," The Legacy will be released on UK DVD and Blu-ray on 9th February 2015 by Arrow Films as paft of their Nordic Noir label at the RRP of £29.99 for each edition.
