June 25, 2014 We Are The Best! (2014) Drama/Music Western Pennsylvania Premiere
Three girls in 1980's Stockholm decide to form a punk band -- despite not having any instruments and being told by everyone that punk is dead. Pixieish, mohawk-sporting Klara (Mira Grosin) and her best friend Bobo (Mira Barkhammar) are 13-year-old rebels looking for a cause. Despite having no instruments -or discernible musical talent- the two put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band, recruiting their shy, classical guitar-playing schoolmate Hedvig (Liv LeMoyne) as the third wheel. With tender affection for his young characters and the period in which his film is set, Moodysson paints an ebullient and sharply observant portrait of Do-It-Yourself spirit and growing up different. 102 minutes. Written and Directed by Lukas Moodyson.
