This delightful Swedish coming-of-age drama centres on three 13 year old girls in 1980s Stockholm. Fed up with their parents and the kids at school who ridicule their tomboyish haircuts, best friends Bobo and Klara decide to start a punk band. Enlisting the help of the talented but quiet Hedvig as their guitarist, the trio embark on their first ever gig.
Director Lukas Moodysson (Together) evokes the anarchic spirit of the period whilst creating a genuinely funny and recognisable portrait of adolescence filled with embarrassing parents, romantic disasters and never-ending friendships.
For anyone who’s ever been a teenager and especially those who have teenagers in their household.
“A joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion.” ★★★★ Time Out
