We Are The Best! (Lukas Moodysson, Sweden, 2013)

  • The Star 47 Chester Road London N19 5DF (map)
We Are the Best! is the rare film about childhood friendship that seems to take place inside the world of children, not filtered through an adult scrim of nostalgia.
— Dana Stevens, Slate

We are delighted to once again be part of the ‘LOCO Local’ strand of the LOCO London Comedy Film Festival this year. 

The  broad theme of films in the strand is ‘youth’ and we’ve chosen to show one of our favourites of recent years.

The story is simple - three misfit girls in 1980s Stockholm decide to form a punk band - despite not having any instruments and being told by everyone that punk is dead.

Moodysson (Together, Lilya 4-Ever) takes this familiar story and imbues it with humour, energy and teenage kicks.
