About the Movie
Inspired by horrifying true events, Nothing Bad Can Happen follows Tore, a young lost soul involved with an underground Christian punk movement who falls in with a dysfunctional family who test his seemingly unwavering faith. After a chance encounter helping stranded driver Benno, where Tore manages to start his car with an apparent miracle, he is invited back to Benno's home and becomes friendly with him, his wife and two children. Before long, Tore moves into a tent in the garden and gradually becomes part of the family. However, Benno can't resist playing a cruel game designed to challenge Tore's beliefs. As his trials become more and more extreme, Tore finds his capacity for love and resilience pushed to its limits and beyond.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Pitting good against evil with striking intelligence and a near-operatic commitment to extreme suffering, Ms. Gebbe neither mocks nor celebrates Tore's love for his God.
Rotten: If Gebbe is trying to say something about the opiate of religion or the social conditions that lead homeless teens into bad situations, it's muddled -- rather than sharpened -- by the ultimately numbing graphic violence.
Fresh: Be careful who you pray for.
Fresh: The film has a lyrical visual palette, almost like a bad memory, and Gebbe draws very strong performances from her cast.
