WE ARE THE BEST! is Lukas Moodysson’s adaptation of his wife Coco’s graphic novel about three young misfits growing up in early ‘80s Stockholm. Mohawk-sporting Klara and her best friend Bobo are 13-year-old rebels who, despite having no musical ability, put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band. With tender affection for his young characters, Moodysson paints an ebullient portrait of youth.
Selected and presented in person by filmmaker and Princeton Professor of Visual Arts Su Friedrich.
