Director Robert Eggers made a name for himself with 2015’s horror film, The Witch. With just three films under his belt including his new film, The Northman, he’s showcased his distinct style for storytelling. Alexander Skarsgard leads the film as Amleth lives as a Viking berserker. They’re a violent tribe inspired by wolves and bears. As a young boy, he was anointed by his father (Hawke) to be on a path of greatness. It was not long after that when Young Amleth watched his father’s murder at the hands of his Uncle Fjolnir. Now two decades later, Amleth is reminded of the vow he made and sets out to avenge his father’s death with the help of Anya Taylor-Joy’s, Olga, a young woman he meets on a slave ship.
