Lukas Moodysson's Wonderful Punk Band Comedy 'We Are the Best!' to Close Rotterdam Film Festival (TRAILER)

Lukas Moodysson’s hilarious and heartfelt coming-of-age film “We Are the Best!,” following three pre-teen girls in 1980s Stockholm who start a punk band, has been selected as the closing night film of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, running January 22 through February 2.

The film is based on Moodysson’s wife’s graphic novel, and has played Venice, Toronto and AFI FEST, to name a few. Here’s the official synopsis:

Bobo, Klara en Hedvig decide to form a punk band in the
early eighties to air their grievances against society, with meaningful
songtitles like Brezhnev and Reagan, Fuck Off!. Moodysson portrays the
turbulent punk era with lots of humor and energy. People of all ages can
identify with these girls, who insist on not being a girl band, connected by
their insecurities, embarrassing parents, unrequited love and feeling left out.
