Magnolia Pictures announced today that the critically acclaimed WE ARE THE BEST! will debut on iTunes and On Demand tomorrow,Friday, June 20th as it continues its expansion to select theaters across the country.
From director director Lukas Moodysson (Together, Lilya 4-Ever), WE ARE THE BEST! is one of the best reviewed films of the year, and has been opening in cities across the country to near universal acclaim.
WE ARE THE BEST! is the exuberant and joyful story of three young misfits growing up in early ’80s Stockholm. Pixieish, mohawk-sporting Klara and her best friend Bobo are 13-year-old rebels looking for a cause. Despite having no instruments-or discernible musical talent, the two put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band, recruiting their shy, classical guitar-playing schoolmate Hedwig as the third wheel. With tender affection for its young characters and the period in which the film is set, WE ARE THE BEST! paints an ebullient and sharply observant portrait of DIY spirit and growing up different.
The film is currently on screen in 20 markets with 15 more opening tomorrow, and a continued expansion planned into July. The film’s June 20th debut on iTunes and On Demand will make it available to virtually every household in America tomorrow, giving viewers the choice between the theatrical and home experience.
