Jenna Boyd performs almost a miracle by making this otherwise appallingly bad comedy an overall enjoyable experience.

Elina is a school girl in rural 1950s Sweden. With a strong sense of morals, Elina defends her classmate and gets into trouble for it. The plot is simple, but it's probably adults who can best appreciate the beauty of the setting.

Yella plays Alice, a girl who hangs out with a man in Amsterdam. Yella acts well, but there's very little to do in this semi-plotless movie.

Age:  14

A silly kids' movie about young teens executing a robbery, but the Danish approach stands out with its style. Julia is considerably likable in her main role.

Based on the great Swedish youth book, this movie fails to create a credible impression of another time and place, but is still enjoyable especially for fans of the book.

Bachir Lazhar starts as a teacher for a class whose previous teacher has just killed herself. While the school community processes the event, Lazhar is coping with deaths in his own recent past. An intelligent movie with strong though small young actress roles.
