Watch: New Trailer For Lukas Moodysson's Punk Pic 'We Are The Best!'

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist February 28, 2014 at 7:05PM

With a slate of films during the ‘00s including “Lilja 4-ever," “Together," and “Mammoth," director Lukas Moodysson may not seem the most apt director for an upbeat, crowd-pleasing period rock drama. Yet that’s exactly what he’s done across the world with his new film “We Are The Best!” and a brand new trailer has landed to showcase the unique type of tale that Moodysson has concocted.

We Are The Best!

With a slate of films during the ‘00s including “Lilja 4-ever," “Together," and “Mammoth," director Lukas Moodysson may not seem the most apt director for an upbeat, crowd-pleasing period rock drama. Yet that’s exactly what he’s done across the world with his new film “We Are The Best!” and a brand new trailer has landed to showcase the unique type of tale that Moodysson has concocted.

Based on Moodysson’s wife Coco’s graphic novel “Never Goodnight”, the film follows three tween girls—Bobo, Klara, and Hedwig—in 1985 Stockholm who form a punk rock group and let their new ethos spread into every aspect of their education, friendships, and family lives. Showings at Venice, TIFF, and AFI Fest last year led to solid critical notices all around, we named the film as an Honorable Mention in our piece on the Best Upcoming Films of 2014.

A U.K. release date of April 18th ensures that overseas audiences will be able to see the film soon enough; stay tuned for a US date to see when you can take a look at Moodysson’s warm and refreshing latest film. In the meantime, catch the trailer and a new poster below. [Empire]
