Three sentence movie reviews: We Are the Best
Hey, remember how I loved Kings of Summer but lamented the lack of coming-of-age movies with girls as the main subjects? It turns out that Sweden is on it, with middle school girls and punk rock, rather than high school and the outdoors. While being incredibly fun and heartfelt, this movie also captures a lot of nuance of girl-as-friend relationships, especially during the middle school, jockeying-for-position time period.
Cost: free from library

You sold me. I was so surprised to discover that my local library has 3 copies that I put one on hold right away.
Procured from library and watched. I liked it well enough, but Dan absolutely LOVED it, which I think is pretty adorable.
Awesome. And adorable too.
I am impressed that you found a movie that fit the bill. Of course there isn’t one made by the American film industry! Way to go Sweden!
