A bittersweet film about teenage years. It focuses on 19-year-old Moa, played by lovely Alexandra Dahlström, who had her acting debut as Elin in Lukas Moodysson’s “Fucking Åmål”. Moa lives in small-town Sweden. Her friends are terribly politically correct, woolly liberal vegetarians and animal rights activists. Moa does all she can to fit in with them, but she keeps putting her foot in it by listening to the wrong music, wearing the wrong clothes and falling in love with the wrong guy. It gradually dawns on Moa that her friends treat her like a dog that can just be pushed around. She decides to take control of her own life, even if it means being an outsider. Debut director Tova Magnusson-Norling sensitively portrays a time in which the fear of isolation clashes with the need for individuality. We’ve all been there – we live it every day.
