For some punk rock is a lifestyle, and for others it’s a fashion statement, but for the trio in Lukas Moodysson‘s “We Are The Best!” it’s an attitude, an energy that sees three young kids find themselves in an era of lipgloss and synthesizers.
Starring Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin and Liv LeMoyne, and based on Coco Moodysoon‘s graphic novel “Never Goodnight” (inspired by her own punk rock years), the story follows three teenage girls who fall out of step with the world around them and form a punk rock group. This is a coming-of-age tale with both loud guitars and heart, landing in the honorable mentions of our list of The 21 Best Films Of 2014 We’ve Already Seen. For anyone who’s felt like a freak or on the outside, this one looks like it’s for you.
“We Are The Best!” opens in limited release on May 30th.
