DGC Video: Show Me Love

Opens on June 13

Director: Lukas Moodysson Run Time: 86 min. Release Year: 1998 Language: Swedish

Starring: Alexandra Dahlström, Erica Carlson, Jill Ung, Josefine Nyberg, Rebecka Liljeberg

Tagline:  Awkward teenager Agnes (Rebecca Liljeberg) has recently moved with her family to the small rural town of Åmål, and has a secret: she’s head over heels in love with one of the popular girls at school, the impulsive and restless Elin (Alexandra Dahlström). When a doomed birthday party leads to a chance encounter between the pair, an unexpected romance blossoms that might be the most exciting thing to happen in Åmål in years. An instant smash hit upon its 1998 release that was acclaimed by no less than Ingmar Bergman as “a young master’s first masterpiece,” Lukas Moodysson’s SHOW ME LOVE (also known as FUCKING ÅMÅL) is a touchstone of new queer cinema and one of the most authentic portrayals of youthful relationships on film.
