The Misfortunates (2009)

A working class hero is something to be.

Felix Van Groeningen is part of the generation that put Flemish cinema back on the map. His The Misfortunates, based on a novel by Dimitri Verhulst, got selected for several film festivals and was a considerable box office hit. The succes was surpassed by Van Groeningen’s next film, Alabama Monroe (The Broken Circle Breakdown, 2014).
