God Save the King

This adorable chick-rock comedy from Sweden (2005) went a long way toward erasing my unpleasant memories of the Gina Gershon vehicle Prey for Rock & Roll. Set in the early 80s, when you could still get jumped for wearing a Mohawk, it centers on two bedroom rebels so giddy with fantasies of punk-rock glory that they don't mind banging out their tunes at an old folks' home. After they recruit a supercool bassist and a geeky synth player the band begins to take off, though the lead singer turns out to be fairly prescient when she declares, “The band always breaks up if someone has a boyfriend.” Ulf Malmros directed. In Swedish with subtitles. 94 min.
