a laugh yet still a school special
Swedish mid-90s film focusing on a 14-year-old girl in school in Stockholm. She rebels against her mother by wanting to be accepted by her the cool peers, i.e. the upstarts. She starts going out of character entirely in order to try and fit in with them, and not become the butt of their jokes and constant terror. Thus, she shuns the only - the most bullied - girl in her class. The tension gradually mounts towards the end of this school special, which is quite soft yet a laugh if you're Swedish. My only question is: who the hell lets their 14-year-old walk through all of the south of Stockholm on a mid-week night?
