We Are the Best!
Swedish auteur Lukas Moodysson (Show Me Love, Lilya 4-Ever, Together
) directs this spirited musical pic based on his wife Coco's semi-autobiographical comic book about growing up in early-'80s Stockholm. The film concentrates on a trio of working-class 13-year-old girls who decide to form their own punk band (despite a lack of musical skill). With naturalism and charm, the film captures that age when everything was either life-changingly awesome or earth-shatteringly tragic. A pitch-perfect ode to friendship, girl power and loud music. 102 minutes
