Girls Lost is an unusual and fascinating film, another gem distributed by Wolfe Video.  It tells the engaging story of three extremely close-knit high school girls.   They are miserable in school though — bullied and tormented by the punk high school boys.  The three soon discover a magical flower that can transform them into boys, and, being adventurous high school kids, they decide to drink its nectar.   Voila, the bullying stops, and the boys on the sports field not only stop tormenting them, but also befriend them as equals and friends.
Girls Lost is a unique tale told from the perspective of high schoolers, but will appeal to anyone who has ever wanted to fit in, wondered about their identity, or wished they could somehow even for a day be someone else.  The acting is extremely good — natural and unforced, despite how challenging it must have been.  Surprisingly, for most of these young actors, it is their acting debut.

It’s a film that combines elements of sci fi, paranormal, drama and humor.  You will be impressed with the movie’s originality and well-crafted filmmaking.  The soundtrack is also quite good.

Writer/director Alexandra-Therese Keining (Director of the film Kiss Me) handles these diverse elements with skill and seamlessly blends them all together in an enjoyable and thought-provoking film.  In Swedish with English subtitles.  Released today 12/13/16 in the U.S. and Canada via Wolfe Video and available on DVD, Video on Demand and through iTunes, Vimeo on Demand, WolfeonDemand.com, and in many major retailers.
