Three young Swedish misfits form an all-girl punk band.
WHY WE PICKED IT: An authentic, utterly delightful and affectionate tribute to adolescent rebellion.
Growing up in early 1980s Stockholm, androgynous, mohawk-sporting Klara and her best friend Bobo are ostracized by their 13-year-old peers and looking for an outlet. Thus, despite having no instruments or even necessarily any musical talent, the two girls decide to throw themselves into forming a punk band and enlist their shy, classical guitar-playing classmate Hedvig to help them.
