European Film Series: Nói the Albino

Noi the Albino (Icelandic: Nói albinói) is an 2003 film by director Dagur Kári.

Noi (Tomas Lemarquis) is a gifted 17-year-old boy from Northern Iceland who dreams of fleeing his dreary small-town surroundings -- even after the arrival of Iris (Elin Hansdottir), who's new in town and has brightened up Noi's lackluster existence. Soon, Noi plans a getaway for him and his new friend, as the townsfolk continue to view Noi's lack of conformity to rural life as simply his being a lazy, dim-witted failure.
