Synopsis:
Let the Right one in is a story both violent and highly romantic, set in the Stockholm suburb of Blackeberg in 1981.Oskar is 12 and being bullied. One evening in the playground he’s jabbing his knife into a tree, whispering the name of his tormentors. Suddenly, a girl is standing on the climbing frame, a girl his own age whom he has never seen before. Her name is Eli and she is full of contradictions; her wise look, her strange smell, that fact that she is wearing such thin clothing, her neglected and skinny, yet so beautiful, appearance. Eli is not like other people, she can’t bear the sun, she can’t eat food, and to come into a room she needs to be invited. She needs to drink peoples blood to survive.
