Magnolia Pictures will release WE ARE THE BEST!


WE ARE THE BEST! is Moodysson’s adaptation of his wife Coco's graphic novel about three young misfits growing up in early '80s Stockholm. 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 DIY spirit and growing up different.

"Evocative" – Screencraft.com
"Outrageous fun." - Movie Mezzanine
"An entertaining crowd pleaser." - FilmPulse
"Era-specific but never nostalgic, tender but never sentimental, We Are the Best!, like all good films about teenage girls, finely illuminates the emotional extremes of this tumultuous development stage." - Art Forum
"A joyous, heart-swelling story of youthful rebellion. A delightful return to form for Lukas Moodysson." – The New York Times
"A JOYOUS TIME CAPSULE. Captures the DIY empowerment of punk rock and the bond of female friendships in one blissful swoop. For those of us who've been hoping that Lukas Moodysson would return to the tender touch of early movies like Show Me Love and Together, the wait is over." - The Village Voice
"HEARTFELT AND RAMBUNCTIOUS" – Los Angeles Times

We all are rebels, so some just act on it!
