A new trailer has arrived for Lukas Moodysson's wonderful 1982-set coming-of-age comedy "We Are the Best!," following three pre-teen girls' attempts to start up a punk band. While Moodysson has been nothing if not experimental with tone, subject and setting in his recent films, "We Are the Best!" recalls the offbeat humor and heart of "Show Me Love" and "Together."

A new trailer has arrived for Lukas Moodysson's wonderful 1982-set coming-of-age comedy "We Are the Best!," following three pre-teen girls' attempts to start up a punk band. While Moodysson has been nothing if not experimental with tone, subject and setting in his recent films, "We Are the Best!" recalls the offbeat humor and heart of his earlier films "Show Me Love" and "Together."

This warm and witty festival darling has been picking up buzz since premiering at the 2013 Reykjavik Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award, before going on to Venice and Toronto. Check out a new international clip below as well.

The film hits select cities May 30 via Magnolia Pictures.
