Directed by Daniel di Grado
When Alena arrives at her elite new boarding school, she immediately becomes the target of bullying from queen bee Filippa and her squad. But Alena has an old best friend named Josefin who won’t let her take any more abuse. If Alena won’t strike back, Josefin will do it for her. But something’s not quite right about Josefin... To say what it is would spoil the many surprises in this gorgeously realized teen terror flick, which belongs in the company of recent Scandinavian horror faves like LET THE RIGHT ONE IN and LAKE BODOM. Based on a graphic novel by Kim W. Andersson, ALENA is also from the director of the upcoming JORDSKOTT Season 2. In Swedish with English Subtitles
When a new girl at an elite private school is mercilessly bullied, her mysterious best friend decides to strike back.
Cast: Helena Af Sandeberg, Johan Ehn, Ulrika Ellemark
Predicable but impressive regardless!!!! Great film!!!!!!!!
I really enjoyed the film, though I thought it tipped its hand too early and ruined the setup. However, I thought the script was engaging and the lead did a very good job carry the film. You may have seen the "twist" before, but since the film in a way de-emphasized it, it became more of a plot development than a moment of surprise. Worth a watch!
Not necessarily unique. Not necessarily bad. Exactly what you would expect.
Great movie! The way the main characters worked together was amazing,gave myself goosebumps at the end!
THIS MOVIE IS REVOLUTIONARY!!! ALENA IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER WATCHED THIS YEAR! I kind of predicted the ending BUT THAT DIDN'T CHANGE THE PLOT DRIVEN FORCE THAT PACKED A PUNCH RIGHT THROUGH MY GUT!!!
