The Swedish movie Fucking Åmål, released in English-speaking countries as "Show Me Love", is wonderful. The blurbs at Netflix and IMDB are all wrong; it's not about the incredibly true adventures of two girls in love, which was also a good movie. It's about growing up in a backwater town like Åmål, where new things are already passé before they arrive. The Last Picture Show without the McMurtry wierdness.
