You and Me Forever

A film by Kaspar Munk (Denmark I 2012 I 82 mins)

Best friends forever Laura and Christine, both sweet sixteen, are inseparable… until the arrival of new girl in town, the super-confident and feisty Maria. Laura is at once captivated and mystified by Maria, as Christine feels increasingly alienated. While Laura hangs on her every word, Maria takes her by the hand on a wild and hedonistic journey through adolescence to adulthood. Kaspar Munk’s second feature offers a sensitive portrayal of female teenage angst in this gritty coming-of-age story about idolisation, vulnerability, sexuality, and ultimately friendship.
