Loosely adapted from Coco Moodysson's graphic novel, Lukas Moodysson's 'We Are the Best!' returns to the feel good territory of 'Show Me Love' and 'Together' with this immensely enjoyable and inspiring story of three young girls in 1980s Stockholm, who decide to form a punk band. The film successfully balances the girls' increasing rebellion against the disarray of their family life.
Perfectly capturing the spontaneity of youthful abandon, Moodysson is aided in no small part by his three charismatic leads.
"In 1980s Stockholm, three thirteen year old girls united by their outsider status decide to form a band. Never mind that they have no instruments, no knowledge of how to play, and never mind that punk has had its heyday. An infectious and impassioned ode to teenage rebellion and friendship, 'We Are The Best!' is every bit as joyous as its title, with plenty of laughs along the way." - LOCO London Comedy Film Festival
