"Sweet and heartwarming but also incredibly perceptive. Just a beautiful, lovely film that makes me want to be Swedish and live in a commune. Plus it has the best use of ABBA ever" - Andrew Haigh
Lukas Moodysson's 'Together' is a film about people trying to live happily. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's about love and divorce, family happiness – and unhappiness. It’s about the bonds of friendship and family. And sex. And football.
The year is 1975. Elisabeth, a fairly ordinary housewife from the suburbs, tires of her husband so she packs her bags, takes her children with her and goes to live with her brother, Göran. He lives a very different life in a commune, which takes a little time for Elisabeth to adjust to, although the kids think they’ve just gone to heaven. The commune is a chaotic place, inhabited by long-haired people who discuss politics, have sex when and with whomever they like, grow their own vegetables and drink lots of red wine.
