Review

A cute little coming-of-age film from Sweden notable for fine performances by the three teenage leads and a warm, accepting portrait of teen emotional instability. When the film never reaches any relevance beyond the constraints of the story itself, it is because writer/director Linda-Marie Birbeck threads too familiar waters and populates her film with props and behaviours that feel more like anachronisms from her own childhood than actually belonging to teens of today.
