Set in rural Costa Rica, “Clara Sola” is a film about a 40-year-old virgin whose sexual life changes when an outsider comes into her village. Though the winners will be declared on Jan 24th next year, the film has been nominated for Swedish Film Award, Guldbagge, or Golden Beetle. Being the nation’s top film prize, Guldbage has had some outstanding films in its bag since 1964.
