This sensitive coming-of-age film brings audiences back in time to Northern Sweden in the 1930s and the colonial oppression of the indigenous Sami people. Expertly helmed by first-time Swedish-Sami writer-director Amanda Kernell, the film follows a young girl caught between her family and her dreams for the future — all while raising questions about whose dreams she is chasing: her own, or those she has ingested through her Swedish education. The director and talented actress have created a very real depiction of female sexuality without the usual Madonna-whore stereotypes. This is not a tortured story of an occupied people, but rather a complex tale of a strong young woman searching for her future, her dreams, her connections and her identity. ~JS
