Acclaimed actor and filmmaker Josephine Bornebusch is working on “Let Go” (working title), a Swedish drama for Netflix.

A native of Stockholm, Sweden, Bornebusch will be creating and directing the film, along with starring in one of the leading roles, according to a news release.

“Let Go” is a drama about finding out what really matters. In the center is Stella (Bornebusch): She has everything under control, except her preschool son’s constant need for attention, her daughter’s teenage mood swings and her emotionally unavailable husband. The family is about to break when Stella receives a message that changes everything. She decides to take a trip with her family where she has to achieve the impossible – to bring her family together again.

“I have a penchant for writing about recognition, families, and life in its most ordinary moments – with all that it entails. Sorrow, happiness, love, and betrayal,” Bornebusch said in a statement. “I met with Netflix at a very early stage when this story came to me. They believed in the project as much as I did and encouraged me to dig deeper. I’m so happy that we’re now realizing the film together, with the potential to reach far and wide. It’s finally happening.”

As a director and writer, Bornebusch is known for the movies “Love Me” (2019), “Orca” (2020) and “Harmonica” (2022).

“Let Go” is set to be released globally on Netflix in 2024.
