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
Pretty good! There were a couple parts that made me confused and I'm still left with an unanswered question, but this is still a really good movie! Great acting, as well
Well-paced stalker-themed lesbian thriller with cliché, but effective, twists. Also, particularly vivid performances by actors Amalia Holm Bjelke and Felice Jankell.
Pretty predictable but a fine watch to get it out of the way. Plan to read the comic now.
An excellent and terrific adaptation of the comic. Truly in-depth and a dark cautionary tale that should be seen.
