What sounds like an obscure nature documentary is anything but in this Swedish story of angsty teenage girls from director Lisa Aschan. The story revolves around Emma, a seemingly normal teenager who falls into some dubious company with the more confident and alluring Cassandra. Together they fend off the attentions of men and compete against each other in a horse-riding school. It's certainly suggested that they're more than friends, though Aschan toys with the idea rather than consummate it. Indeed, she seems to be saying something rather specific about the growing pains of teens and tween. Emma's tweenie sister seemingly wants to grow up faster, evoking some awkward scenes. It's well-acted by its two young leads, but the film drifts aimlessly from one scene to to the next without any real resolution. It's more of a mood piece than a complete film, but watchable all the same.
