Lukas Moodysson is generally acknowledged as the greatest living Swedish director, but nothing in his filmography can prepare you for We Are the Best! Adapted from a comic book by his wife Coco Moodysson, We Are the Best! is about a trio of teenage girls who form a punk band. Not only is it an empowering feminist film, but it’s also the rare coming-of-age movie that perfectly transfers the exuberance, the raw liveliness of youth, to its audience. At SIFF, audiences left screenings of this movie blush-cheeked and laughing, giddy with the sheer fun of it all. (Varsity, 4329 University Way NE, see for showtimes)
