We Are the Best! 2013 15

Sweden Director. Lukas Moodysson

Lukas Moodysson (Show Me Love, Lilya 4-Ever) returns with this raucous coming-of-age comedy set in 1982, Stockholm. Klara and Bobo are united as misfits by their love of music. Ignoring their own lack of talent and the people who tell them punk is dead, the pair form their own band with shy classmate Hedvig. In between fighting over boys and provoking their metal-head nemeses, the three begin preparing for their debut live gig. Brilliantly funny and life-affirming, We Are The Best! will appeal to the teenager in everyone.
